Shoaib Akram

Lecturer and HDR Convenor—Computing Foundations


My current emphasis is on the evaluation and optimization of the emerging memory and storage hierarchy. I investigate cooperative hardware/software approaches to optimize the memory/storage hierarchy.


I am an assistant professor at the Australian National University, Canberra, in the School of Computing. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Ghent University (Belgium) in 2019. My doctoral advisor was Lieven Eeckhout. I also hold an M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

I am interested in computer systems in general and memory and storage systems in particular. My research approach intersects the boundary between the hardware, OS, and language runtime.

I serve on the reviewing committees of top-tier computer architecture, systems, and programming language conferences.
