Funded Ph.D: Dynamic Memory Management For Embedded Non-Volatile Memory

Main supervision : CITI (Lyon). Partners : eVaderis (start-up company, Grenoble) Verimag (Laboratory, Grenoble)

The general context of this project is smart objects, aka the Internet of Things. Technologically speaking, we are interested in next generation System-on-Chip platforms, based on non-volatile memory technologies. Such technologies make it possible to design very energy-efficient embedded systems, but they also require significant changes in terms of software programming. We aim at designing and studying novel memory management mechanisms, both hardware and software, to improve the performance of such systems. More precisely, we will address the problem of dynamic memory management, i.e. allocating, placing, and moving around the various data structures used by the application program.
