Women in Computer Architecture (WICARCH) is designed to create a community for women studying and working in the field of computer architecture. Our goal is to promote women in computer architecture and increase visibility for their research and development contributions. We welcome participation from all women including students, post docs, industry researchers and developers and faculty members. To be listed in our directory, please click here.
Profiles of WICArch
The mission of this section is to profile women in computer architecture across many walks of our field, from [junior, senior] x [industry, academia].
If you would like to be profiled, would like to nominate someone to be profiled, or would like to write a profile, please let us know by email@example.com
Dr. Mengjia Yan is undoubtedly one of the most delightful people you will ever meet – smart, positive, exceedingly wise beyond her years, and the kind of person who can turn a frown upside down. She was paired with me as a mentee at ISCA 2018, but I genuinely think that it is I who have benefited from the relationship. These days, she is a new assistant professor at MIT, having recently completed her PhD at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2019.
We actively maintain a list of women working in the field of computer architecture. The goal of this list is many-fold. First, the list services as a resource for program chairs and conference organizers to identify women to serve in key technical roles such as keynote, panels and program committees. Second, the list is designed to foster community and help women connect with other women in computer architecture. This list can be used by current and potential graduate students to find advisors and mentors. Four profiles, selected randomly, are shown below. We encourage you to browse the full directory.
Helena Caminal is a first-year Ph.D. student in the Computer Systems Lab at Cornell University, advised by Prof. José F. Martínez. She is generally interested in computer architecture and systems, with a focus on processing-in-memory.Accelerator-Based, Application-Specific and Reconfigurable Architecture, Architecture For Emerging Technologies and Applications, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
Alexandra Jimborean received the PhD degree from the University of Strasbourg, France in 2012. She is assistant professor with Uppsala University since 2015. She was awarded the Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship offered by Google in recognition of excellent research, along with other 25 distinctions, awards and grants. Her research focuses on compile-time and run-time code analysis and optimization for performance and energy efficiency and on software-hardware co-designs.Architectural Support For Programming Languages Or Software Development, Instruction, Thread and Data-Level Parallelism
I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at University of California, San Diego. My research spans and stretches the boundary between computer architecture and system software, with an emphasis on memory and storage systems and domain-specific acceleration. I am particularly interested in architecting emerging memory technologies (e.g., nonvolatile memories and 3D-stacked memory) into future data centers and edge computing systems that execute various applications, e.g., machine learning, big-data analytics, smart home, and smart transportation. I am also interested in developing deep learning to help computer systems design and programming.Architecture For Emerging Technologies and Applications, Iot, Mobile and Embedded Architecture, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student at Tsinghua University. My research interests include non-volatile memory, processing in memory and machine learning.Accelerator-Based, Application-Specific and Reconfigurable Architecture, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
We organize various initiatives to better connect women in computer architecture.
