CSE Associate Chair and Prof. Scott Mahlke has been named an IEEE Fellow, Class of 2015, "for contributions to compiler code generation and automatic processor customization."
Since joining the University of Michigan faculty in 2001, Prof. Mahlke's research has been focused on the design of customized multicore processors, accelerators, and systems consisting of both that are higher performance, lower power, and more reliable. His Compilers Creating Custom Processors research group pursues work in this area with a goal of increasing the efficiency of designs by customizing the hardware to the software that will run on the system. Because the group's focus is on building programmable systems, they also develop the new compiler technology required to automatically map applications onto the new hardware that is designed.
Prof. Mahlke received his BS in Computer Engineering and his MS and PhD in Electrical Engineering, all from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is named on 16 patents and has coauthered 150 refereed publications, some of which have been honored by best-paper awards and one which was recognized in 2006 as an influential paper in the field by ACM/IEEE. He is the recipient of an NSF CAREER award and a Young Alumni Achievement Award from the University of Illinois, and has been recognized at the University of Michigan with the Monroe-Brown Foundation Education Excellence Award and with the Ted Kennedy Family Team Excellence Award, both from the College of Engineering, as well as with an Outstanding Achievement Award from the EECS Department.
About IEEE Fellows:
The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors upon a person with an outstanding record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year cannot exceed one-tenth of one- percent of the total voting membership. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honor and an important career achievement.
The IEEE is the world’s leading professional organization for advancing technology for humanity. Through its 400,000 members in 160 countries, the IEEE is a leading authority on a wide variety of areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers, and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power, and consumer electronics.
