About Dr Mario Marino
Mario Donato Marino is currently a Senior Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University. He is currently teaching computer-systems-related courses at the School of Computing, Creative Technologies & Engineering.
Mario's current research is in computer architecture area. Mario's current work includes the design and evaluation of performance and power benefits of future and current memory systems in typical and embedded microprocessors.
Mario is mainly working to approach the challenges of future memory systems, which consist in bandwidth, latency, and energy utilization. Mario is currently participating on the reviewer board of international journals (Inderscience IJES and IJHPCN) and conferences (3PGCIC-2016, EUC 2017, ICACOMIT2016 and EMSA-2017).

Mario's research is focused on mechanisms for improving bandwidth and latency of memory systems. Mario has started this research by proposing radio-frequency (RF) memory organizations which allows the exploration of a larger number of memory controllers in order to increase bandwidth. In future plans, Mario is likely to approach other technologies such as optical or 3D-stacking.
One of the consequences of scaling memory controllers is the reduction of the amount of memory traffic per memory controller, and reduction of the transaction queue utilization. Currently, Mario is investigating the impact of shallower transaction queues in terms of performance and energy implications.
