Pen-Chung Yew joined the Department of Computer Science & Engineering as a professor in 1994. He also served as the associate head of the department from 1995-96 and 1999-2000, as well as the head of the department from 2000-05. Yew received his M.S. (1977) in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and his Ph.D. (1981) in computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was recognized as an IEEE Fellow in 1998 and was named a William Norris Land-Grant Chair Professor from 2000-05.
Yew's research/teaching interests include computer architectures and compilers targeting future generations of secure high-performance multi- and many-core systems. Areas of recent focus include enhancing system security at both the micro-architectural and source/binary-code levels, system virtualization and dynamic binary translation, leveraging machine-learning approaches to enhance compilation techniques, improving high-performance memory systems, and debugging and testing of parallel programs.
