Mieszko Lis is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UBC. Prior to joining UBC, Mieszko received his SB, MEng, and a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he focused on massive-scale multicore processors and various architectural techniques required to build them. Between his undergraduate and doctoral studies, Mieszko accumulated extensive industry experience as a co-founder of two start-up companies.

His research interests include multicore architecture, fine-grained parallelism and compilation techniques, high-level hardware design languages and methodologies, and the applications of computing techniques to the natural sciences. He is committed to raising the level of abstraction across the computing landscape — an interest he has also explored as co-designer of the high-level hardware design language Bluespec and developer of a high-level language for computational immunology studies.
