Bio/Description

An Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 2009, she graduated with a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University in 2001, an M.S. in Computer Science from Stanford in 1999, and a B.S. in Computer Science from the National University of Singapore in 1995. She joined the faculty at Princeton in February 2002 as Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering. She remained in that position until 2008; then was an Associate Professor from 2008-2009. Her research at Princeton entitled: "Self-Regulating Power-Aware Interconnection Networks." focused on low-power interconnection networks, on-chip networks and parallel computer architectures. The project investigated the power consumption of communication elements of an increasingly interconnected digital world. The goal was to develop and build self-regulating power-aware interconnection networks that trade off power and performance automatically. Such a system would reconcile the design goals of high- performance and low-power usage. This research was funded by several grants from the National Science Foundation, the DARPA MARCO Gigascale Systems Research Center and Interconnect Focus Center as well as Intel Corporation. She was awarded the NSF CAREER award in 2003 (the NSF's most prestigious early-career research grant); the CRA Anita Borg Early Career Award in 2007; and the Sloan Research Fellowship in 2006. In 2011, she was a recipient of the Distinguished Scientists award by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). The Distinguished Member Grade ACM Award recognizes those ACM members with at least 15 years of professional experience and 5 years of continuous Professional Membership who have achieved significant accomplishments or have made a significant impact on the computing field. Among the numerous publications she has co-authored are: “On-Chip Networks”, Synthesis Lecture on Computer Architecture (Editor: Hill (Wisconsin)), 2009 with Natalie Enright-Jerger (Toronto); and with Steve Keckler (Austin) and Sriram Vangal (Intel), the chapter, “On-chip Networks for Multicore Systems”, in the Book entitled: Multicore Processors and Systems, Editors: Steve Keckler (Austin), Kunle Olukotun (Stanford) and Peter Hofstee (IBM), Springer, 2008.
