My name is Bodun (though I usually go by Edward). I’m a CS PhD student at UT Austin 🤘, working in the UTNS lab with Aditya Akella and Atlas Wang. My research lies at the intersection of operating systems, network, and machine learning. I love building systems for ML and using ML to enhance systems.

Before my PhD, I worked with Christopher Rossbach on heterogeneous computing at SCEA lab, and with Simon Peter on programmable switches.

I have a MS and a BS in Computer Science from UT Austin, where I also worked on GPU benchmarking and enabling OS kernel access to accelerators.

Check out my blog for my latest projects and news.
