I am a Ph.D. student in MIT's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). I am a member of MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), and I work in the Supertech group with Professor Charles Leiserson.
My research draws from algorithms and systems to simplify the tasks of writing, reasoning about, and debugging fast code. Towards this goal, I have developed parallel language technologies, tools, and parallel algorithms that can support software performance engineering as a scientific process.
I am generally interested in computer science (both theory and systems), math, and awesome puzzles. If you have recommendations in any of those areas, please feel free to let me know.
What do people call me?
Most people refer to me by my first two initials, "TB." Many people also call me "Ben." My full name is "Tao Benjamin Schardl," which I shorten to "Tao B. Schardl" on all of my publications.
What is my username, and what does it mean?
My username of choice is
neboat. What my
username means is left an exercise for the reader.
