Name: Vlad Ureche

Bio: I am a PhD student at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, in the Programming Methods Laboratory (LAMP). My supervisor is Prof. Martin Odersky, best known for designing the Scala programming language.

I am interested in performance-oriented compilation of high-level language constructs. Convenience and safety make generics great for productivity, but due to the erasure transformation, they perform sub-optimally when used with primitive numeric types. This is where I can help. My main project, dubbed miniboxing, is aimed at compiling generic classes down to very efficient bytecode. It is available at and can speed up generic code by up to 22x.
