TB Schardl

Tao B. (TB) Schardl is a research scientist in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT. He runs the Supertech research group with Prof. Charles E. Leiserson, and he is Chief Architect of OpenCilk, a new open-source platform for task-parallel programming. His research aims to make it easy for programmers, including nonexperts, to write fast code in the post-Moore era. His research combines algorithms and systems to develop technologies that enable principled, scientific approaches to software performance engineering. His research spans compilers, runtime systems, software analysis tools, programming models, theories of performance, and parallel algorithms and applications. His work on the Tapir/LLVM compiler received the best paper award at ACM PPoPP in 2017.
