Raghu Prabhakar is a graduate student advised by Prof. Christos Kozyrakis and Prof. Kunle Olukotun. His research interests span the areas of programming models, compilers and novel architectures with a focus on reconfigurable hardware.

His two current research projects are Spatial, a new programming language for spatially reconfigurable architectures, and Plasticine, a new reconfigurable accelerator architecture. The goal of Spatial and Plasticine is to achieve orders of magnitude improvement in performance and performance-per-Watt on various machine learning and data analytics workloads compared to conventional approaches, while providing a high-level programming model. More information can be found at spatial.stanford.edu and plasticine.stanford.edu.
