Uday Bondhugula is the founder at PolyMage Labs, and an associate professor of computer science at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), at Bangalore, India. His research interests lie in the areas of high-performance computing, compilers, polyhedral framework, automatic parallelization, and in high-performance systems/accelerators for deep learning and artificial intelligence. He received his Ph.D. from the Ohio State University in 2008, and his Bachelors' in Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in 2004. He is the original author and maintainer of Pluto, a source-to-source loop parallelization and optimization tool based on the polyhedral framework. He recently received the ACM SIGPLAN Most Influential Paper award for his PLDI 2008 paper on polyhedral optimization for parallelism and locality. As a visiting researcher at the Google brain team in 2018, he was a founding team member of the MLIR project.
