Hyeran Jeon's main research interests lie in energy-efficient, reliable and secure computer architecture and systems design. Her research lab has been sponsored by National Science Foundation, California Energy Commission, LAM Research, NVIDIA (equipment), and Xilinx. She earned her Ph.D. at the University of Southern California, under the supervision of Prof. Murali Annavaram, where she received Viterbi dean’s doctoral fellowship. She has industry experiences as an intern at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center and AMD Research, and as a systems software engineer at Samsung Electronics.
* I am looking for PhD students. If you are interested in research on computer architecture in general, GPU architecture, deep learning acceleration, or heterogeneous system, submit an application with my name marked as your faculty interest (here).
Why UC Merced? UC Merced campus is in 2-hour proximity from Silicon Valley. We are the youngest campus in the prestigious University of California system. Students will get the same benefit with the other campuses inspite of cheaper living expenses. Check our ranking for computer architecture and high-performance research here.

I will serve as an Artifact Evaluation Co-chair for ASPLOS'24. We are looking for committee members; please nominate your talented colleagues, students, or yourself(!) through the Nomination Form by 7/11. This is an excellent opportunity to experience the review process and learn from reproducing others' work!
We received an NSF IUCRC fund for founding the Center for Memory System Research (CEMSYS)! Lots of interesting research activities will follow between UC Merced, UC Davis, and the potential industry partners!!
Yuan got a summer internship from Alibaba Group. Congrats!
Our work-in-progress paper about performance scalability on multi-GPU systems has been accepted to GPGPU'23! Congrats, Yuan!
Hoa successfully finished his master project and will join MathWorks in Jan! Congrats, Hoa!
I am co-chairing a brand new workshop on Heterogeneous and Composable Memory, HCM'23, co-located with HPCA'23. Please submit your preliminary work in 2-page abstract and get feedback from our expert PC members. The due is 12/12.
I am co-chairing GPGPU'23. The paper due is 12/9. Please consider submitting your work!
Yuan presented at SRC poster session at MICRO about his on-going work on memoization!
IEEE TCuARCH that I am serving on the executive committee is running a new Youtube Channel, People in Computer Architecture. Please visit and learn about the community.
IEEE Standard on Power-Proportional Digital Architectures (1924.1) that I co-authored as a co-vice chair and a co-secretary has been published! The standard provides guidelines for the designers and developers of digital architectures for creating power-proportionality at different levels of the system.
CWIDCA will be held with MICRO in Oct. Please consider submitting a poster and travel application!
