The SAFARI Research Group is led by Professor Onur Mutlu.  Our research is in computer architecture, systems, security, and bioinformatics.  Our work spans and stretches the boundaries between applications, systems, languages, system software, compilers, and hardware. We tackle many issues in high performance, energy efficiency, hardware security, fault tolerance, predictable systems, dependable systems, and hardware/software cooperation. We are especially excited about novel, fundamentally-secure and fundamentally-efficient computation, communication and memory/storage paradigms, applied to emerging systems, technologies, and bioinformatics/medical applications.  Group members also work in the areas of system design for bioinformatics and biologically inspired computing paradigms.

Bachelor and Master's Theses and Semester Projects 

We are always looking for highly qualified and motivated students and researchers.  If you are an ETH student and are interested in doing a bachelor or master's thesis with us, or a semester project, please see our Theses and Projects page for potential topics.

If you are about to finish your bachelor or master’s degree or are already doing research and are interested in working with us at any level (internship, PhD, postdoc, visiting scholar), please visit our Work with us page.
