Paul Kelly: Undergraduate research opportunities in Software Performance Optimisation

We are looking for up to three students to spend the summer working in the Software Performance Optimisation research group.

To get an idea of what the research group does, have a look at http://www-ala.doc.ic.ac.uk/~phjk/SoftwarePerformanceOptimisation/iSPELHomePage.html

The objective is to involve you in our research work. A successful UROP project should lead to you being a coauthor on a published paper, and/or being responsible for an open-source software release.

Our criterion for selecting you is that you need to be able to get stuck into very complex software, and make it work.

How to apply:

If you're interested, please send me an email with a very short explanation of your main technical achievements, and the research area you're most excited about - and we'll fix a time to meet.

Specific project ideas include:

Distributed Java:

Component-based scientific computing: Internet performance: Linux performance: I have enough money for at least a couple of good students so if you know anyone else who might be interested, please send them to me.
