Computer Architecture and Systems Research Laboratory


The Computer Architecture and Systems Reserach Laboratory at Western Michigan University has been establish and led by Dr. Lina Sawalha.

Our research include computer architecture, microarchitecture, interaction among computer architecture, compilers and systems, hardware/software codesign, high-performance computing, energy-efficient computing, and applications in machine learning.

Current and past projects:

- CPU-FPGA heterogeneous architectures

- Heterogenous CPU microarchitectures

- Characterizing 3D-image rendering and gaming applications

- Comparison of existing Instruction Set Architectures

- Computer Architecture Simulation

- Hybrid Prefetchers

- CPU-GPU acceleration of fluid dynamics applications
