.: Welcome to Dr. Akoglu's Reconfigurable Computing Laboratory

Our research program focuses on high performance computing systems and non-traditional computing architectures with themes that cover: a) development of resource management strategies from multi-processor system-on-chip to cloud computing scale; b) design and development of reconfigurable hardware architectures for reusable systems; c) modeling and simulation of neuromorphic computing architectures; and d) restructuring computationally challenging algorithms for achieving high performance on field programmable gate array (FPGA) and graphics processing unit (GPU) hardware architectures. Our lab is currently funded by:

  • DARPA - "Domain-Focused Advanced Software-Reconfigurable Heterogeneous System on Chip (DASH-SoC)"
  • NSF I/UCRC - "Industry/University Cooperative Research Center for Cloud and Autonomic Computing"
  • Raytheon - “Exploring the Architectures and Application of Neuromorphic Computing”
  • NIH, National Institute on Aging - "Impact of CMV Upon T-Cell Aging and Immune Defense" 


Most recent accomplishments:

  • Nirmal passed his oral comprehensive exam, fantastic job like a pro.
  • Burak defended his dissertation! Yey, congratulations!
  • Josh and Nirmal appeared in the ECE 2019 Annual Magazine regarding the DASH-SoC project
  • Ruben is on his way to Carnegie Mellon with a Dean’s Fellowship
