Our Team

Developing advanced computer systems requires both breadth and depth and has much to draw upon from ideas in algorithms, operating systems, compilers, circuits, networks, machine learning, programming languages, device physics, and security.  By looking at computer architecture and embedded systems through the eyes of its application we can enact the biggest change, but doing this requires students and collaborators willing to dive in, get their hands dirty, and learn something new!

Tim Sherwood
Professor of Computer Science
Associate Vice Chancellor for Research

Tim Sherwood is a Professor at UC Santa Barbara specializing in the development of processors exploiting novel technologies (e.g. plasmonics and memristors), provable properties (e.g. information flow security and correctness), and hardware-accelerated algorithms (e.g. high-throughput scanning and new logic representations).

In 2013 he co-founded Tortuga Logic to bring rich security analysis to the hardware and embedded system design processes.  Those techniques have now scaled to operate successfully on designs from some of the largest semiconductor and systems engineering companies in the United States. He is the recipient of the Northrop Grumman Teaching Excellence Award, the ACM SIGARCH Maurice Wilkes Award, co-author of 10 award winning articles, and an ACM Distinguished Scientist.
