About me

I am Chargé de Recherche at Inria in Rennes in the PACAP team. My research area is microarchitecture and microarchitecture modeling.


  • P. Michaud, “Best-offset hardware prefetching“, International Symposium on High-Performance Computer Architecture, march 2016. Slides. Download the paper from HAL, not from the IEEE site; IEEE messed up the PDF I sent them in 2016; for some reason unknown to me, they seem to have applied a script on the PDF that changed some numbers in the graphs.
  • A. Seznec, S. Jourdan, P. Sainrat, P. Michaud, “Multiple-Block Ahead Branch Predictors”, Proceedings of the 7th Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems, October 1996.
