Waleed Meleis
Associate Dean for Graduate Education, Office of the Dean Associate Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering Affiliated Faculty, Bioengineering
Collaborator with the Lab

Waleed Meleis received his BSE degree in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 1990, and the MS and PhD degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan in 1992 and 1996. In 1996 he joined the Computer Engineering Group of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University.

Professor Meleis’s research is on developing and evaluating algorithms and bounds for combinatorially difficult optimization problems. He has made contributions to the following areas:

  • Optimal scheduling and register allocation, with spill code, for multiple-issue processors
  • Microprocessor-aware scheduling algorithms for modern compilers
  • Algorithms for weighted-completion time scheduling
  • Design and analysis of tight lower bounds on schedule length
  • Backtracking acyclic schedulers
  • Parallel and scalable processing systems and programming toolsets.
  • Computational infrastructure for seamless, inter-site Grid computing
  • Applications of combinatorial optimization to switching, testing, and reconfigurable computing
  • Multiagent machine learning for distributed combinatorial optimization
