Gokhan Memik


Ph.D. Electrical Engineering, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA

M.S. Electrical and Computer Engineering, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL

B.S. Computer Engineering, Bogazici Univeristy, Istanbul, Turkey

Research Interests

Prof. Memik works in the area of computer architecture. His work spans three major areas: (1) understanding/developing new technologies and developing architectures that are more suitable for these technologies, (2) modeling large-scale systems and optimizing them, and (3) developing techniques that can automatically detect user needs/requirements and use this information to improve performance of mobile system and reduce their power consumption.
