Professor, Computer Science
Computer Science, Ph.D., University of Wisconsin-Madison, 1993

Sarita Adve's most significant research contributions are in the areas of memory consistency models for multiprocessors, hardware reliability, power management, exploitation of instruction-level parallelism (ILP) for memory system performance, and evaluation techniques for shared-memory multiprocessors with ILP processors. She co-developed the memory models for the C++ and Java programming languages, which are based on her early work on data-race-free models, and co-developed the concept of lifetime reliability-aware architectures and dynamic reliability management. She led the design of one of the first systems to implement cross-layer energy management, and co-authored some of the first papers on exploitation of ILP for memory-level parallelism. She also led the development of the widely used RSIM architecture simulator.
