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 Wisconsin at Madison. Our group creates novel software systems (e.g., Taskflow, OpenTimer, DtCraft, SNIG, RTLflow) to simplify the building of performance-critical applications, such as electronic design automation (EDA), machine learning (ML), and quantum computing. Our software has been used by thousands of people in industry and academia.

Where Are We?

Our research group is situated at the beautiful Madison City - an Isthmus between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona. Madison has been consistently placed top in the list of Best Places to Live in the US and Top College Towns in the US.

Join us!

We are looking for highly self-motivated PhD, MS, and undergraduate students to join us, doing research on parallel computing, computer-aided design, quantum computing, and machine learning systems. My students have been collaborating and working with many companies, such as Nvidia, Intel, Cadence, Synopsys, IBM, Google, and so on.

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, University of Wisconsin, National Science Foudation, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, NumFocus, Nvidia, and Intel.
