Glenn @ UNC



Hi there!  I’m a sixth year graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  I’m working towards my Ph.D. in the field of real-time systems, where my focus is on building practical real-time systems on platforms that are composed of a variety of processors (heterogenous systems).  Specifically, my current focus is in the use of GPUs (graphics processors) in real-time systems.  My adviser is Jim Anderson.

I’m originally from Southern California and did my undergraduate and masters studies at the University of Southern California (Fight On!), but I’ve really found a great home here in North Carolina!  My colleagues in the Real-Time Systems group are all great!  Much of our group, including myself, is focused on systems design and implementation, resulting in our long-running LitmusRT Linux-based operating system, which we use to test a variety of real-time algorithms.  That’s not to say that we leave theory behind—we do quite a bit of that as well.  Theory should be informed by real-world constraints and what we build should be informed by theory.
