Canada CIFAR AI Chair
Pan-Canadian AI Strategy
Christophe Dubach is a Canada CIFAR AI Chair at Mila and an associate professor jointly appointed in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and the School of Computer Science (CS) at McGill University.
Dubach’s research interests include data-parallel language design and implementation, high-level code generation and optimization for parallel hardware (e.g. GPU, FPGAs), architecture design space exploration, and the use of machine-learning techniques applied to all these topics.
