Jason Mars received his Ph.D. from University of Virginia in 2012 and recently joined the CSE department at the University of Michigan as an assistant professor in July of 2013. Mars’ work focuses on the optimization of warehouse scale computers (WSCs). Such systems are increasingly becoming popular: companies like Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, IBM and Microsoft are deploying hundreds of such systems throughout the world in order to power the next generation of internet services. Such systems now form the backbone of the emerging area of ‘cloud computing.’ Mars’ work is at the intersection of architectures, compilers and runtime systems. Specifically, his work proposes a set of techniques that to optimize the interaction and sharing of resources in datacenter systems while maintaining high levels of performance.
