Graduate Fellow: Gennady Pekhimenko (2015)

Gennady Pekhimenko from Simferopol, Russia

Studying at CMU

Research: Gennady's general research focus is on energy-efficient memory systems using hardware-based data compression. He discovered a series of mechanisms that exploit the existing redundancy in applications’ data to perform efficient compression in caches and main memory, thereby providing higher effective capacity and higher available bandwidth across the memory hierarchy. His most recent work is looking into how to perform energy-efficient bandwidth compression for modern GPUs. Research link
