Stephen CragoDirector of Computational Systems and Technology

Computational Systems and Technology (CS&T) is a world leader in computing technologies, from basic to applied, investigating a wide range of hardware and software technologies. Our research addresses all levels of computing, from emerging quantum devices to large deployed heterogeneous cloud systems, and includes the software and tools to enable end users to harness these systems in a highly productive fashion. This research also includes providing reliable computing in challenging domains such as space, mobile, security, and low-power.
