LSUS Student Completes REU Program at Texas State University

November 21, 2017

The Computer Science (CS) Department at LSU Shreveport is pleased to announce that one of its outstanding senior majors, Arch Henderson III, successfully completed a summer 2017 Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Software Systems and Analysis program funded by NSF CISE and hosted by Department of Computer Science at Texas State University in San Marcos.

Arch worked as a team with Amanda Hooge, a fellow student from Texas State University and their project was predicting the optimal thread configuration of CUDA compilers for parallel graph algorithms based on input graph properties using machine learning. Their mentor was Dr. Apan Qasem, an AMD researcher. Their abstract was submitted for presentation at Supercomputing 2017, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis.

Arch is expected to complete his B.S. in CS in May 2018. He will start a full time position in December 2017 at CSRA as a Junior software developer, six months before completing his degree. We are very proud and congratulate him on his achievements!
