My Picture

Eric Schnarr

I am a Ph.D. graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, now working for TomoTherapy, Inc. My research focused on applying programming language technology to improve micro-architecture simulation. My accomplishments include a simulator for out-of-order processors that is 10x faster than contemporary simulators, and a language and compiler for generating similarly optimized architecture simulators. Recently, for TomoTherapy, I have been developing parallel, cluster based software to plan radiation treatments on TomoTherapy hardware.

In my spare time I play hockey, play and run AD&D adventures, and ride a motorcycle. My wife -- Maggy -- has a horse, and I like riding him too.
