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 MS 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.

Visit my blog :memo: to find out what I’ve been working on recently as well as other updates.
