New Faculty: Nodari Sitchinava

The ICS Department is delighted to announce that Nodari Sitchinava, currently a post-doc at Aarhus University, will be joining the ICS faculty in Spring, 2014.

Nodari Sitchinava received Bachelor and Master degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT and a PhD in Computer Science from UC Irvine. After graduating he accepted a postdoctoral appointment at the MADALGO Center at the CS department of Aarhus University.

His research concentrates on developing accurate models of computation for modern parallel architectures and designing algorithms for them. In particular, his PhD dissertation concentrated on combining cache-efficiency with parallelism for multi-core architectures and on the development of a number of fundamental combinatorial, graph and geometric algorithms in the new model.
