Sustainable Computing Laboratory (SCL)

The mission of Sustainable Computing Laboratory is to address reliability and security challenges emerged in problems at device, circuit and system scales. Supported by federal agencies including National Science Foundation and Air Force Research Lab, and industry companies including IBM, Intel, ITRI and Ameren, we focus on four research themes:


Dr. Yiyu Shi

Dr. Yiyu Shi is currently an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, the site director of NSF I/UCRC Alternative and Sustainable Intelligent Computing, and the director of the Sustainable Computing Lab (SCL). He received his B.S. in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 2005, the M.S and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2007 and 2009 respectively. His current research interests focus on hardware intelligence and biomedical applications. In recognition of his research, many of his papers have been nominated for the Best Paper Awards in top conferences (ASPDAC'20, CODES+ISSS'19, DAC'19, DAC'16, ISPD'15, ICCAD'14, ISPD'13, ASPDAC'09, ICCAD'08, ICCAD'07, DAC'06), and best student paper at CVPR'19 workshop. He was also the recipient of IBM Invention Achievement Award, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Faculty Invitation Fellowship, Humboldt Research Fellowship, IEEE St. Louis Section Outstanding Educator Award, Academy of Science (St. Louis) Innovation Award, Missouri S&T Faculty Excellence Award, NSF CAREER Award, IEEE Region 5 Outstanding Individual Achievement Award, and the Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship. He has served on the technical program committee of many international conferences including DAC, ICCAD, DATE, ISPD, ASPDAC and ICCD. He is on the executive committee of ACM SIGDA, a member of IEEE CEDA Publicity Committee, deputy editor-in-chief of IEEE VLSI CAS Newsletter, and an associate editor of IEEE TCAD, IEEE Access, ACM JETC, VLSI Integration, and IEEE TCCCPS Newsletter.
