Dr. Byrd's primary research is in the areas of quantum computing and high-performance parallel systems. He is interested in mechanisms which reduce communication overhead in parallel and distributed systems. Other areas of interest include computer architecture, network processing, service-oriented computing, and network security.
Before joining NC State, Dr. Byrd was a principal scientist at Celotek Corporation, where he developed software and protocols for the CellCase family of encryptors for ATM networks. He also worked at MCNC, in both the NC Supercomputing Center and the High Performance Computation and Communications group.
