Donald M. Chiarulli
Donald M. Chiarulli is a Professor of Computer Science and Computer Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1986 from Louisiana State University, the first Ph.D. in Computer Science conferred by LSU. He received a M.S. in Computer Science from Virginia Polytechnic Institute in 1979, and a B.S. in Physics from LSU in 1976.
Dr. Chiarulli's research can generally be categorized as Experimental Computer Architecture. His career has focused on modeling and testing new designs that exploit emerging technologies for the design of computer systems and embedded computing devices. He has worked extensively in optical computing and photonics, MEMs, micro-fluidics, and 3D integration in systems with applications in Computer Science, Engineering and Biology.
A distinguishing thread in all of this work is an emphasis on the development of experimental prototypes and/or cycle accurate models as the basis for investigation. Dr. Chiarulli and his students have designed, fabricated and tested dozens of experimental integrated circuits in conventional CMOS technology and exotic technologies such as GaAs, Silicon on Sapphire, 3D stacked Silicon on Insulator and 3D CMOS/memory stacked architectures..
For much of his career Dr. Chiarulli has enjoyed a close collaboration with colleague Professor Steven Levitan, also at the University of Pittsburgh. Much of the research described below was conducted jointly with Professor Levita nover the course of 27 years of working together
