Dr. Erez Perelman

I received my PhD in computer science from the University of California, San Diego on June 2007. I did research with Brad Calder in the High Performance Processor Architecture and Compilation lab, and I have focused on understanding the behavior of programs during execution. A good application from this research has been in simulation methodology. We've provided infrastructure to allow you to quickly and accurately determine where you should be spending your program simulation and analysis time. This is called the: Simulation Point Toolkit (SimPoint).

    Presonal Interests

    To make up for the near vegetable state of working on the computer everyday, I try to balance myself out with some of these activities:

    Gardening- Nothing quite as satisfying as some home-grown herbs. Check out some of my hot peppers. My dad helped me build a greenhouse for growing a variety of hot peppers, as a result of which I have enough hot peppers to burn an ulcer thru a piece of metal.

    Guitar- I like to play them and also build them. I play mostly classical and Latin American music, and occasianally dabble with Flamenco. I have had numerous performances and also have a recording out. As far as building them, I strive for the traditional craft and try to minimize the use of powertools. Here are some guitar-pictures.

    Backpacking and moutaineering are also great activities to recharge with after a deadline. Here are some pictures from my recent attempt with Mt. Rainier.
