USRC’s Beyond Moore’s Law (BML) research is focused primarily in the areas of probabilistic, approximate, and inexact computation.
USRC’s Beyond Moore’s Law research is lead by Dr. Laura Monroe.
Below are the staff considered to be in the “Beyond Moore’s Law” group.
Dr. Laura Monroe
Laura is a researcher in resilience and novel computing techniques, especially probabilistic computing. Her current interest is the design of algorithms and systems to address expected increasing fault rates in hardware in a probabilistic manner. Another interest is the application of discrete mathematics to the design and understanding of computing systems. She also led the production visualization effort at LANL for many years, and was the originator and project leader of the recent redesign and redeployment of the LANL visualization corridor, encompassing the computing systems, networking, and display systems used for LANL ASC large-scale visualization. She served on the design teams for the Cielo and Trinity supercomputers and was one of the designers of the Viewmaster visualization compute cluster. She has published in the areas of probabilistic computing and algorithms, resilience, error-correcting codes, virtual reality and visualization. She received her Ph.D. In Mathematics and Computer Science in the field of Error-Correcting Codes, working with Dr. Vera Pless.
Post Bachelor, Los Alamos National Laboratory
Michael Lane is researching techniques to make exact computations on fault-prone hardware.
