Research

Professor Wilken works on compiler optimization, an important method for speeding up computer programs. Until recently finding exact solutions to important compiler optimizations such as instruction scheduling and register allocation was considered intractable. However our research has shown such optimizations can be solved exactly in reasonable time using methods from combinatorial optimization. The research is extremely practical (new techniques are built inside a real compiler) while being theoretically rigorous. The research includes an interesting blend of computer engineering and applied mathematics.

He invented, developed and published a breakthrough global scale “green” energy storage technology in which bulk aluminum rich alloys split both fresh water and salt water into hydrogen gas on demand, thus obviating the need to store and transport hydrogen.

Professor Wu’s research focuses on social computing, information search and analytics, cyber security,  Internet architecture and protocols. The nature of his research is very “experimental”, meaning that he builds prototype systems and performs experiments to validate and evaluate new architectural concepts for the security of our Internet.
