A picture of me

Charles McGuffey

I am a Computer Science PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University. My adviser is Phil Gibbons. I completed by Bachelors in Computer Science and Bachelors in Computer Engineering at Clarkson University in 2015.

My primary research interest is in parallelism, which I believe is extremely important to the future of computing. I consider systems and algorithms approaches, and I think that understanding both of these areas and how they interact is an important tool for a researcher.

In addition to my research, I enjoy games in most senses of the word. In the board game sense, I play Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons and Dragons, and a plethora of long complex board games. I also enjoy sports games, and am active on the CMU Computer Science and Computational Biology intramural teams.
