- unknown (b.)
A Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, she received her Dipl. Ing. degree in Computer Science from "Politehnica" University of Bucharest, Romania in 1991 and her Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from University of Southern California in 1998. A pioneer in energy-aware computing, she is developing novel power management techniques to improve the performance delivered per unit of energy consumed for computer hardware and software. Because of continuous downsizing of hundreds of processing cores on computer silicon chips, increased power consumption by these tiny processors creates major bottlenecks for increased performance. She is the recipient of a National Science Foundation Faculty Career Award (2000-2004), an ACM-SIGDA Technical Leadership Award (2003), the Carnegie Institute of Technology George Tallman Ladd Research Award (2004), an ACM-SIGDA Distinguished Service Award (2010), and Best Paper Awards from IEEE Asia South-Pacific Design Automation Conference (ASPDAC 2005), IEEE International Conference on Computer Design (ICCD 2008), International Symposium on Quality of Electronic Design (ISQED 2009), and IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems (2011). She was an IEEE-Circuits and Systems Society Distinguished Lecturer (2004-2005), the Chair of the ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation (2005-2009) and is an ACM Distinguished Scientist and a Senior Member of IEEE. Her research interests include energy-, reliability-, and variability-aware computing and CAD for non-silicon applications.
