IBM Fellow and Ted H. McCourtney Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame


PETER M. KOGGE received his Ph.D. in EE from Stanford in 1973. From 1968 until 1994 he was with IBM’s Federal Systems Division, and was appointed an IBM Fellow in 1993. In August, 1994 he joined the University of Notre Dame as first holder of the endowed McCourtney Chair in Computer Science and Engineering. He has served as both Department Chair and Associate Dean for Research, College of Engineering.  He is an IEEE Fellow, a Distinguished Visiting Scientist at JPL, and a founder of Emu Solutions, Inc. He holds over 40 patents and is author of two books, including the first text on pipelining. His Ph.D. thesis led to the Kogge-Stone adder used in many microprocessors.  Other projects included EXECUBE – the world’s first multi-core processor and first processor on a DRAM chip, the IBM 3838 Array processor which was for a time the fastest floating point machine marketed by IBM, and the IOP – the world’s second multi-threaded parallel processor which flew on every Space Shuttle. In 2008, he led DARPA’s Exascale technology study group, which resulted in a widely referenced report on technologies for exascale computing, and has had key roles on many other HPC programs. He has received the Daniel Slotnick best paper award (1994), the IEEE Seymour Cray award for high performance computer engineering (2012), the IEEE Charles Babbage award for contributions to the evolution of massively parallel processing architectures (2014), the IEEE Computer Pioneer award (2015), and the Gauss best paper award (2015). His interests are in massively parallel computing paradigms, processing in memory, and the relationship between emerging technology and computer architectures.
