Zoran Budimlić is a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science. His teaching interests include programming languages, software engineering, compilers and parallel programming. He was one of the five faculty members that launched the Rice Online Master of Computer Science Program.
His research interests include compilers for high productivity languages, object-oriented languages and compilation, high performance and parallel computing, software transactional memory and more. Anything that will help the programmers to write code for the increasingly powerful (but also increasingly complex) computers of today and tomorrow.
He is currently leading CnC-Madness, a multi-institutional NSF research project (jointly with Colorado State University and Stony Brook University), whose goal is to develop new programming technologies based on CnC, a declarative, data-flow model for expressing and executing irregular tree-based scientific applications.
