RESEARCH INTERESTS

SHORT BIO

Mayez Al-Mouhamed is specialized in computer architecture, parallel algorithms and programming, and robotics. He has over 80 publications in the above areas. He received the Silver Medal from the International Geneva Conventions in 2012 and was awarded the Certificate of Distinguished Research Project, First Degree, Golden, from King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KCST) for his work in Tele-Robotics in 2006. He also received many Excellence Awards from KFUPM for his accomplishments in research, teaching, and services. In HPC related issues, he worked on parallel compiler restructuring for automatic and directive-based parallelization. He extensively analyzed the issues of array organization in parallel memories and proposed systematic address mapping schemes to favor predefined data access patterns. Currently he is working on the design of restructuring tools for optimizing CUDA programming and exploring new programming methodologies for the efficient implementation of some hierarchical algorithms on GPUs.
