Tosiron Adegbija


I am an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Arizona.

I received my PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Florida in May 2015. I received my M.Sc degree from the University of Florida in 2011, and my B.Eng degree from the University of Ilorin, Nigeria in 2005.

Outside of doing research, I enjoy playing the keyboard, bass guitar, reading (non-fiction), traveling, and having interesting conversations with random strangers at airports.

Research Interests

My research interests include high performance and adaptable embedded computing architectures and optimization methodologies, and right-provisioned microprocessor architectures for the Internet of Things (IoT). Due to the power and thermal constraints that have nearly halted increases in clock speed, coupled with design complexity and scalability issues, microprocessor manufacturers have turned to multicore architectures, where multiple processors are integrated on a single die. Additionally, with the growth of the IoT and consumer demand for mobility, I envision that more compute- and memory-intensive applications that are currently executed on desktop and server systems will increasingly be executed on embedded systems. Significant emphasis must be placed on equipping embedded systems with the right-provisioned microprocessors to support the increasing demand for high-performance embedded computing systems. Thus, my research interests include, but are not limited to, dynamic optimizations, low power embedded system design, phase-based tuning, heterogeneous multicore embedded systems, configurable systems, high performance computing, real-time systems, computer architecture, and low-power processors for the Internet of Things (IoT).Read more...
