Fermín Sánchez, associate professor, has been teaching
at the "Universitat Politècnica de
Catalunya" since 1987. He received
his PhD in computer science from the "Universitat
Politècnica de Catalunya" on January 1996.
Since 1985, he works at the Computer
Architecture Department (Departament
d'Arquitectura de Computadors). Currently, he is working in the
VLSI CAD group.
His research interest is in software pipelining and register optimization.
Fermín plays futbol (soccer)
in the AC
Team. He also plays drums in
The music style is a
fusion between power-funk and rock-power.
Fermín Sánchez thesis is titled
"Loop pipelining with resource and timing constraints". It
proposes a new approach for software pipelining based on retiming and unrolling.
The approach is oriented to the high-level synthesis of circuits. However,
it has been successfully used in the compilation of loops for parallel
architectures (superscalar and VLIW proccessors). The thesis also proposes
techniques to reduce the register pressure in a pipelined schedule.
