Chair, IEEE Sustainable Computing STC

Dr. Stewart leads the ReRout Lab which produces computer systems research that reaches out.  He is a recipient of the prestigious NSF Career Award.   He received a PhD from the University of Rochester. He also graduated from Morehouse College.    [full bio]

Highlight: In Autumn 2019, we are aggressively recruiting undergraduate students to our lab. Join our research team now!

Highlight: In April 2018, we presented Model-Driven Computational Sprinting at the European Conference on Computer Systems (EuroSys). Our work addresses a common problem for cloud systems: when should I overclock servers given energy/themal limits? Our approach systematically explores all possible overclocking strategies and finds solutions that outperform state-of-the-art by up to 3.16X.

Highlight: In November 2019, the ReRout Lab will have 4 presentations at the ACM Symposium on Edge Computing (1 full paper, 1 workshop paper and 2 poster papers. Founded by top researchers (e.g., Victor Bahl, Mahadev Satyanarayanan (Satya) and Dejan Milojicic), SEC is the premiere forum for edge computing research. Many say that Edge Computing will be next major revolution in computing.

The ReRout lab is studying the role of autonomy in edge computing systems and systems and architecture support for fully autonomous workloads. In June 2019, we presented an idea paper on Fully Autonomous Precision Agriculture at IEEE ICAC. As one of the few groups with deep relationships with the agriculture industry, we have unique capabilities to explore autonomous, edge computing systems before others.

Highlight: The OSU ACM-W chapter was named an outstanding chapter for 2016. In 2017, we sent a 24 women to the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing.
