My name is Bodun (though I usually go by Edward). I’m currently a CS PhD student in the UTNS lab at UT Austin 🤘. I am advised by Aditya Akella and work closely with Neeraja Yadwadkar. 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.

My research focuses on the intersection of operating systems, network, and machine learning. I am particularly interested in developing systems for ML, and applying ML techniques to systems.

I obtained both MS and BS in Computer Science at the UT Austin, where I worked on modernizing GPU benchmarking and accelerating OS kernel access to accelerators.
