Dr. Tyson is the faculty adviser for the lab. His research areas span all aspects of computer architecture and compiler optimization. His most recent efforts have concentrated on the design of high-performance single-chip processors with a focus on how the compiler can organize microarchitectural resources to provide the highest performance. Gary and his students have published numerous papers on cache organization and have designed several decoupled architectures. His research is funded by the National Science Foundation, Intel Corporation, IBM, and (of course) taxpayers throughout the country.
