Portrait of Eric Chung

Eric Chung

Researcher

About

Eric Chung is a Researcher at Microsoft Research.  He is broadly interested in computer architecture, machine learning, cloud architectures, distributed systems, reconfigurable computing, FPGAs, and high-level synthesis.  Eric is a major contributor to the research, development, and production deployment of the Catapult project at Microsoft, which uses a scalable fabric of interconnected FPGAs to accelerate cloud services.  Currently, Eric leads a team within Catapult to explore deep learning at cloud scale.
Previously, Eric led the CoRAM project at CMU, an architecture that raised the level of abstraction for FPGA programmers.  He was also the principal lead on ProtoFlex, a multi-core FPGA-based full-system simulator. Eric received his PhD from Carnegie Mellon University in 2011, and his B.S. from UC Berkeley in 2004.
