Research Interests:

Ayse Coskun’s “green” computing research at BU refers to environmentally sustainable computing, particularly to the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, and using computing resources –within a wide range from small embedded computing devices to large scale clusters, datacenters, and cloud computing– efficiently and effectively with substantially lower energy costs than today and with minimal impact on the environment.

Prof. Coskun’s research focuses on developing dynamic energy and thermal management techniques and novel computer architectures that are targeted at reducing the energy consumption and the thermal problems at chip-level and at system/datacenter level, while providing high reliability and maintaining the performance capacity at the same time.

Some of the specific areas of interest are designing energy and thermal management techniques for high-performance multicore architectures, 3D stacked systems, and developing highly efficient cooling infrastructures and algorithms.
