Title: Tech Talk with Mike Shah: Performance Engineering and Program Analysis

Date: Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Time: 12:00pm – 1:00pm PDT // 3:00pm – 4:00pm EDT

Registration is required – Register Here!


Discussion about the fields of performance engineering, program analysis, and how the two can be combined to solve computer science problems that ultimately affect the user. Mike will present research projects which use various static and dynamic analysis techniques. You will leave the presentation seeing Mike’s process for finding and solving problems related to performance.

About the Speaker

Mike Shah currently serves as an assistant teaching professor at Northeastern University. While completing his Bachelor of Science degree at The Ohio State University, he was actively involved in teaching web development, 3D modeling, and game creation to students. His undergraduate research involved using gaming technology to train workers how to handle emergency epidemic scenarios.

Shah completed his MS and PhD at Tufts University and spent a great deal of time as a teaching assistant for courses including operating systems, algorithms, graphics, game design, HCI, and data structures. He also believes computer science is for everyone and helped start a series of workshops for graduate students who had not programmed before.

His research activity has focused on building tools that make programmers’ lives easier. This includes building static analysis tools that can hint at bugs and dynamic analysis tools (e.g. a profiler) that can report performance problems. Shah has also researched and built tools to visualize software to better help software engineers develop and manage large projects.

Outside of academics, Shah runs, rock climbs, plays the guitar, and enjoys playing games.
