Associate Professor
SEH 4600 | Office Hours: By appointment


Professor Gabriel Parmer's lab conducts fundamental research into OS design and resource management for the challenges of the systems that control the physical world. Current projects include OS design for massive parallelism, fault tolerance and regenerative systems, end-to-end predictable physical system control, complex system customization and programmability via component composition, and fundamentally new approaches to systems security for embedded systems.
