Weikuan Yu

Weikuan Yu, assistant professor in Auburn University's Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, recently received two grants for more than $130,000 from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The grants fund two separate research projects, one focusing on designing a parallel network file system to enable efficient data-center storage sharing and the other concerned with creating an efficient noise mitigation mechanism for the partitioned global address space languages on peta-scale computing platforms.

Yu joined the Auburn faculty this year after serving as staff research scientist at ORNL. He currently holds a position as a joint faculty member at ORNL and adjunct professor at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Since arriving at Auburn, Yu has founded the parallel architecture and system laboratory.
