Timothy Merrifield
I'm a Computer Science Ph.D. student working with Dr. Jakob Eriksson at the BITS Networked Systems Laboratory at The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Ohio University in 2004 and my M.S. from UIC in 2010.


Research Interests

I'm primarily interested in operating systems, scalable synchronization and deterministic parallelism.
