Graduate Fellow: Meng Zhang (2012)

Meng Zhang is a fourth year PhD student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University. She works on the design and verification of cache coherence protocol and memory consistency model under the guidance of Prof. Daniel J. Sorin. Her current research focuses on the cache coherence design for heterogeneous systems (e.g., CPU and GPU) with a unified memory address. The purpose is to design a cache coherence mechanism that can satisfy the scalability and efficiency requirement of heterogeneous systems. Before studying at Duke, Meng received her M.S. and B.S. degrees from Beihang University in China.
