Research Overview

Damien Borowiec; PhD is looking at the relationship between energy use and computational processing. Cloud computer farms consume nearly 7% of the worlds energy, yet computer scientists do not make energy a central concern of their research. Damien is investigating how the energy used in some processing task can be a factor in the design of that task as well as a concern made visible to users of computer power. The thesis, in computer science, is part of the energy theme in the MSF.
