Yu David Liu is interested in improving software systems through designing novel programming models, compilation techniques, and run-time systems. His recent research focus includes designing energy-efficient and energy-aware programming languages, and constructing multi-core and many-core software. He regularly teaches a graduate-level Programming Languages course (CS571), and a course on Programming Models for Emerging Platforms open for both undergraduate and graduate students (CS476/576). Liu received his Ph.D. from the Johns Hopkins University, and joined the faculty of SUNY Binghamton in August 2008. He is a recipient of an NSF CAREER Award and a Google Faculty Research Award.
