My name is Bodun (though I usually go by Edward). I’m a CS PhD student in the UTNS research group at UT Austin, led by professor Aditya Akella. Before I started my PhD, I was fortunate enough to collaborate closely with professor Christopher Rossbach on heterogeneous computing systems at SCEA group. I also worked with professor Simon Peter on programmable switches :metal:.

My research focuses on the intersection of operating systems, network, and machine learning. I am particularly interested in applying novel solutions to system designs where resource management is complex and challenging.

I obtained both MSc and BS in Computer Science at the UT Austin, where I worked on modernizing GPGPU benchmarking, as well as automating API forwarding to OS kernel space applications.

Spring 2020: Multicore Operating System Implementation (378)



Altis: a benchmarking suite for heterogeneous systems. The primary goal of this project is to improve and update aspects of existing benchmarking suites which are either insufficient or outdated.

gpuinfo: a minimal command-line utility written in Rust for querying GPU status.
