While Professor Sherwood's primary research focus is on the creation of efficient and effective computing systems, his history with ML goes back to 2004 with work appearing in the Journal of Machine Learning Research.  Since that time he has continued to explore learning based approaches to optimize the time-varying behavior of software, worked to establish privacy bounds on the release of information useful for training and optimization, and led the construction of extremely energy efficient methods for classification using both new logic encodings and superconducting materials.


Tim Sherwood received his Ph.D. from UC San Diego and is both a Professor of Computer Science and the Associate Vice Chancellor for Research for UC Santa Barbara. He is a 9-time winner of the IEEE Micro Top Pick Award, the co-founder of the hardware security startup Tortuga Logic, and the 2016 ACM SIGARCH Maurice Wilkes Awardee "for contributions to novel program analysis advancing architectural modeling and security".
