Pietro Mercati, PhD

I am a Research Scientist at Intel Corporation within the Strategic CAD Labs (SCL). 

I obtained my PhD in Computer Science at the University of California, San Diego in January 2017.
During my PhD I was within the System Energy Efficiency Lab (SEELAB) in the Computer Science and Engineering department with my advisor Professor Tajana Simunic Rosing. 

My research interest includes performance, power, thermal and reliability optimization of computing systems, from embedded systems, to high performance computing, to IoT.

I published work in international conferences, such as DAC, DATE and ICCD, and I am a reviewer for several journals (ACM TECS, IEEE TCAD, IEEE Systems Journal, ETRI Journal, Elsevier VLSI, IEEE Access). 

I love teaching! In summer 2016 I was the instructor for two classes at UCSD: CSE140 and CSE140L. At the end I obtained 100% score as "recommended instructor" from student reviews.

I am always interested in academic collaborations! If you want to discuss some research, send me an email.
