In the Reconfigurable and GPU Computing Laboratory (RCL) we research how to use hardware accelerators such as Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) for a wide variety of applications. Our interest is in developing tools, libraries and interfaces that make accelerators easier to use. Our work helps speed up wireless networking, IoT, medical imaging, security and privacy applications, in many cases taking theoretical algorithm advances and making them practically  viable for the first time.
