Key Research Interests

Geoffrey Mckoewn is part of the Machine Learning and Statistics group

Combinatorial and Numerical Algorithms:

parallel algorithms - including systolic arrays numerical linear algebra algorithm abstraction branch-and-bound paradigm - including parallel implementation linear and integer linear programming (LP and IP).

Functional Programming:

Use of functional programming languages for the specification and transformation of algorithms for mathematical computation Haskell as a language for systolic design.
