Brown University School of Engineering

Computer Engineering Research

Faculty and students perform work in the areas of speech recognition and hardware for speech processing, reconfigurable and parallel computing and microphone array research. Current activity is focused on addressing many of the problems associated with real environments using large-aperture microphone arrays. In addition to the research area of embedded signal-processing systems, a multidisciplinary project is devoted to modeling, manipulation, analysis, and inferencing from data of 3-dimensional shape and its application to archaeology and art.

Research covered in Computer System Design spans a broad spectrum of topics, including design automation and test of integrated circuits, reconfigurable computing, probabilistic computing, embedded system design, reliability of digital integrated circuits, computer architecture, 3D integrated circuits, and synergies between biological and computational systems
