Sudhakar Yalamanchili received the B.E degree in Electronics from Bangalore University, India and the Ph.D degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 1984.

He is currently a Regents Professor and Joseph M. Pettit Professor of Computer Engineering in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta GA. Prior to joining Georgia Tech in 1989 he was Senior and then Principal Research Scientist at the Honeywell Systems and Research Center in Minneapolis. At Honeywell he was the Principal Investigator for projects in the design and analysis of multiprocessor architectures for embedded applications. During that time he served as a member of Honeywell’s Program Technical Advisory Board to MCC and was an Adjunct Faculty and taught in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Minnesota. He currently serves as a Co-Director Center for Experimental Research in Computer Systems (CERCS) (

Dr. Yalamanchili contributes professionally with regular service on editorial boards and conference & workshop program committees. Current and recent service includes the Editorial Board of Computer Architecture Letters (2011- 2015), Program Co-Chair  IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Networks on Chip (2014), and  IEEE International Symposium on Workload Characterization (2015), and Program Committees for the IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture (2015), IEEE International Symposium on High Performance Computer Architecture (2014), and IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Computer Architecture (2014). He is a member of the ACM and an IEEE Fellow.



Our current research interests are organized along the following major themes.

 We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of our current and recent research efforts by the National Science Foundation, Sandia National Laboratories, SRC, LogicBlox Corporation, Samsung Corporation, HP Labs,  AMD,  Intel Corporation, IBM Corporation, Qualcomm, and NVIDIA Corporation.



In the recent past I have taught or am teaching the following classes.

ECE 3056: Architecture, Concurrency and Energy in Computations (Spring 2016)
