Current Info

I'm the Chief Technology Officer at AudienceScience after my company was acquired in April 2001. In the "old days" my work was in the area of single-chip multiprocessors (now known as dual-core or multi-core processors). Some papers on the subject and my thesis (The Case for a Single-Chip Multiprocessor) are below. It's really cool to see that they are now commercially available.
