Håkon Kvale Stensland

Stensland-Håkon-KvaleHåkon Kvale Stensland is a postdoctoral fellow at the Media Performance Group at Simula Research Laboratory. He finished his master degree (MSc) on fault tolerant routing in SCI networks in 2006 and received his his doctoral degree (PhD) in 2015 from the Department of Informatics, University of Oslo.

At Simula, Håkon is the project manager for the Unified PCIe IO project. This is a collaboration project with Dolphin Interconnect Solutions, where we are investigating unified IO such as sharing of GPUs and SSD between multiple machines connected in a PCI Express network.

Håkon is also an adjunct associate professor at the Department of Informatics, University of Oslo where he is involved in teaching the course INF5063 – Programming asymmetric multi-core processors. Håkon have supervised several Master students working with the nVIDIA CUDA framework, distributed processing, multimedia processing and GPGPU in general.

Håkon’s research interests are within the field of distributed processing, heterogeneous processing architectures and energy efficient systems. He is also interested in the state of the art in heterogeneous multi-core processors like the nVIDIA Pascal an Intel Xeon Phi architecture.
