Improving Reconfigurable Computing Platforms

The existing tools and frameworks to map applications onto FPGAs are notoriously difficult to use.  I am working in the following areas to make FPGAs more accessible.  In addition, I believe that FPGAs present unique concerns for physical security because, unlike ASICs, they are reprogrammable:

Accelerating Business & Datacenter Applications

FPGAs can perform massive amounts of customized parallel computation with very good power efficiency.  This makes them well suited for applications that are computationally difficult, datacenter or mobile-oriented, and those that can benefit from highly-specialized operators.  I am currently looked at accelerating the following applications:
