About Me

Hi, my name is Saturnino ("Sat") Garcia and I'm an assistant professor of computer science in the Math and Computer Science department at the University of San Diego. My research is in the area of program analysis, compilers, and parallel computing.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2012 from UC San Diego where I was advised by Michael Taylor. Before that, I graduated from Drexel University in 2005 with a B.S. in Computer Engineering. While there, I worked with Drs. Moshe Kam and Kapil Dandekar. Going even further back, I was born and raised in the small town of Willard, Ohio. People often inquire into the origin of my name. I shared my name with my father, a 1st generation Mexican-American whose purchase of a Tandy computer set me on my path to computer science.

Current (Fall 2014): Previous: Research

My current research revolves around using dynamic program analyses to aid in the design and programming of multicore processors. The following list is a sample of the projects I have been involved with.

I previously worked in the area of nanoelectronic architectures and DNA self-assembly with Alex Orailoglu.
