Computer science and engineering's Jung wins Lawrence Berkeley award

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Myoungsoo Jung, a doctorate candidate in computer science and engineering, received the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) Award of Excellence and won the best poster award for the Computing Sciences 2012 Summer Student Program.

The award was evaluated and selected based on overall potential for research excellence, innovation and originality. During this summer program, Jung, along with John Shalf, department head of LBNL's computational research division, researched large-scale resistive random access memory systems and next generation nonvolatile memory (NVM) technologies for data-intensive computing.

Jung is a member of the Microsystems Design Lab and is advised by Mahmut Kandemir, professor of computer science and engineering.  His research is mainly focused on advanced firmware, middleware, memory controller design atop/within large-scale storage class NVM technologies such as NAND flash, ReRAM, MRAM (STT-RAM), PCRAM, and memory-level and system-level parallelism. He has several industrial patents related to NAND flash-based solid-state disks (SSD) and approximately 30 technical papers regarding kernel-level file systems and SSD flash firmware.
