I'm Mike Lam, a computer science faculty member at James Madison University, specializing in program analysis, compilers, systems tools, and high-performance computing (HPC). Check out my research, teaching, and service as well as my CV using the links at the top of the page.

Professionally and academically, I am a researcher and system tools developer with experience in automated floating-point program analysis, particularly for mixed-precision implementations. I earned my Ph.D from the University of Maryland in Computer Science for developing a general framework for binary instrumentation for floating-point precision analysis.

Personally, I enjoy spending time with friends and family as well as being involved in my local church. While in grad school, I served two years as a deacon at Wallace Presbyterian Church in College Park, MD. I am a long-time PC gamer; lately, however, I have been mostly just following the video game industry in general and playing various games as time allows.
