Xiaoning Ding, whose research has improved the performance of multi-core computer systems, joins the NJIT College of Computing Sciences as an assistant professor. Before coming to NJIT, Ding worked as a research scientist at the prestigious Intel Science and Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University. His research in multi-core system design was so effective that his results have been used by Intel and Red Hat.
In general, his research focuses on practical solutions and building usable systems. One aim of his research is to accelerate data accesses on multi-core platforms by exploiting data locality. Another aim is to develop software systems to facilitate parallel programming for multi-core processors. His research areas include operating systems, cloud computing and distributed systems, computer architecture and database systems. Several of his software prototypes have been used by industries and open source communities.
He was awarded the Computing Innovation Fellowship, which is funded by the Computing Research Association and the National Science Foundation. He received his PhD in Computer Science and Engineering at Ohio State University in 2010. He also received a Graduate Research Award at Ohio State in 2007, and the Best Student Paper Award in USENIX LISA (Large Installation System Administration Conference) in 2008.
