Ms. Allen is an expert in the field of optimizing compilers. As a pioneer in compiler organization and optimization algorithms, she has made seminal contribution to the science. Her work on inter procedural analysis and automatic parallelization continue to be on the leading edge of compiler research. She has successfully reduced this science to practice through the transfer of this technology to products such as the STRETCH HARVEST Compiler, the COBOL Compiler, and the Parallel FORTRAN Product.
