Bio

Bart Kienhuis received a MSEE from Delft University of Technology in 1994 and he received his Ph.D. from Delft University of Technology in 1999. During his Ph.D., he has worked at Philips Research in Eindhoven on a design methodology (the Y-chart approach) for high performance video architectures for consumer products. His primary interest is in the area of embedded system design with an emphasis on design space exploration, performance modeling, architectural analysis, and hardware/software codesign. From 1999 until 2000, Bart Kienhuis was a Post Doc in the group of Prof. Edward A. Lee at the University of California at Berkeley. He is an assistant professor in the Computer Systems group.
