Short Bio

David I. August joined the department as a lecturer in 1999, became an assistant professor the next year, an associate professor in 2006 and a full professor in 2012. He earned his doctoral and master’s degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  Among his professional activities, Professor August was co-program chair for MICRO 2009, and he served on the program committees for ISCA 2007, PLDI 2008, MICRO 2010, ASPLOS 2011, and Top-Picks 2012.  His “Revisiting the Sequential Programming Model for the Multicore Era” was chosen for IEEE Micro’s Top-Picks special issue of papers "most relevant to industry and significant in contribution to the field of computer architecture" in 2007.  He also won the Best Paper Award for “Fault-tolerant Typed Assembly Language” at the 2007 ACM SIGPLAN Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI), in June 2007. His primary research interests are in synergistic compiler and microarchitecture design.
