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.
Faculty at SJSU
San Jose state university
I teach computer architecture and design courses at SJSU's computer engineering department. I have 13 years of academic work experience. My research interests includes processor architectures, memory subsystems, and performance evaluations.
I earned my M.Tech. (2011) and Ph.D. (2022) degrees from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham in Bangalore, India, where I worked on low-power cache architecture and fine-grain data classification in cache coherence mechanisms to improve system performance. My work has appeared in computer architecture conferences (PDP) and the JPDC journal.
Univeristy of Rochester
Darya Mikhailenko is pursuing a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Rochester under the supervision of Prof. Engin Ipek. Her interests cover areas of energy-efficient computer architectures, machine learning for computer vision applications, memory management, accelerators, and architecture modeling for emerging technologies. Darya worked as a research assistant at Nanoelectronics Research Laboratory (Purdue University, U.S.A.) and Bioinspired Microelectronics Systems Laboratory (Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan) on the implementation of brain-computer architecture to actualize deep neural networks. Her recent work was dedicated to techniques to minimize data movement energy by exploiting asymmetric on- and off-chip interconnects. Currently, she researches microarchitecture level optimizations for AR/VR applications.
Darya is looking for internships in the field of AR/VR related but not limited to computer architecture and machine learning algorithms.Architecture For Emerging Technologies and Applications, Effects Of Circuits Or Technology On Architecture, Instruction, Thread and Data-Level Parallelism, Interconnection Network, Router and Network Interface Architecture, Iot, Mobile and Embedded Architecture, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
We organize various initiatives to better connect women in computer architecture.
