Professor Akella is interested in the design and analysis of computing hardware for high performance and low power applications and acquisition and modeling of data in IoT applications. His research group is developing techniques for improving the power efficiency of heterogeneous computing systems in data centers and compiler-based techniques to take advantage of new non-volatile memory technology to improve the performance of large scale machine learning applications. The group is also investigating new DRAM and processor architectures that can take advantage of nanophotonics.
