Introduction

Professor Tolentino is currently an Assistant Professor teaching primarily in the Computer Engineering program within the Institute of Technology and Director of the Intelligent Platforms & Architecture (IPA) Lab. Before joining UW full-time, he spent 15 years at Intel Corporation. At Intel he held many engineering roles on both software and hardware teams. In his last role at Intel, he served as a Research Scientist and Platform Architect responsible for proposing and analyzing new server platforms for the Intel server roadmap. Prior to Intel, Matt spent five years working for the Department of Defense at the Pentagon in Washington DC. Matt has also been involved in several technology startups. While Matt has considerable experience within Computer Architecture, the IPA lab he leads is focused on the emergent area of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Robotics. You can often find Matt in the Computer Engineering lab evaluating the latest sensing device or wandering the halls chasing the the most recent robotic platform.

Scholarly Interests

My primary interests are currently focused on developing, modeling, and evaluating the performance of online, real-time analytical systems for cyber-physical systems including the Internet of Things (IoT) and Robotics. I also love to build and evaluate novel cyber-physical systems, particularly robots, that enable natural interaction including speech and gestures.

I also continue to be interested in novel hardware architectures, system software (firmware, operating systems, middleware, and novel applications), and tools for efficiently exploiting the computational capacity of high-end distributed computing systems.
