Software Distributed Shared Memory (SDSM) systems offer a convenient way to run applications developed for shared memory systems on distributed systems with no changes to them. However, since SDSM systems add an extra layer of abstraction to the memory hierarchy, applications may suffer performance problems when running on top of them. Our main research interest is to develop a set of compiler and runtime system techniques that widen the range of applications that can efficiently run on SDSM
