Joshua Mack is a doctoral student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering program. Born in Iowa, he grew up in Peoria, Arizona, and attended the University of Arizona, where he earned dual degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mathematics. After graduation, he worked as a software engineer in Phoenix. His research interests include the intersection of high performance computing and reconfigurable systems; emerging architectures; and intelligent and/or autonomous workload partitioning across heterogeneous systems. Joshua aims not only to enable better and more efficient computation through designing or choosing the right kind of processor for every job, but also to create environments and structures that allow end users to make these decisions without needing to be experts. Outside of his scholarly pursuits, Joshua is an avid moviegoer and enjoys traveling to new places.
