Welcome to TW’s Research Group

We are a research group supervised by Prof Tsung-Wei (TW) Huang at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the University of Utah. Our group creates innovative software systems (Taskflow, OpenTimer, DtCraft, SNIG) to assist researchers to implement high-performance scientific computing programs.

Our educational habitat is breathtakingly beautiful, situated at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains in the state’s Salt Lake City.

Join us!

We are looking for highly self-motivated PhD, MS, and undergraduate students joining us, doing research on parallel and heterogeneous computing, electronic design automation, and machine learning computing algorithms. Please email Prof Huang your resume and research interest (see our Research and Why Join Our Team?).


We are grateful for funding from University of Utah, National Science Foudation, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, NumFocus.
