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
Natalie Enright Jerger
Dr. Natalie Enright Jerger is a force to be reckoned with, with a resume of a person many years her senior. She is deeply committed to positively impacting our community on many levels – whether through teaching at the University of Toronto, where she …
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.
Martha Kim is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Columbia University where she leads the ARCADE Lab. Kim's research interests are in computer architecture, parallel programming, compilers, and low-power computing. Her work has explored low-cost chip manufacturing systems, reconfigurable communication networks, and fine-grained parallel application profiling techniques. Her current research focuses on hardware and software techniques to improve the usability of hardware accelerators as well as data-centric accelerator design. Kim holds a PhD in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Washington and a bachelors in Computer Science from Harvard University. She is the recipient of the 2013 Rodriguez Family Award, the 2015 Edward and Carole Kim Faculty Involvement Award, a 2013 NSF CAREER award, and the 2016 Anita Borg Early Career Award.Accelerator-Based, Application-Specific and Reconfigurable Architecture, Architecture For Emerging Technologies and Applications, Architecture Modeling and Simulation Methodologies, Instruction, Thread and Data-Level Parallelism, Iot, Mobile and Embedded Architecture, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
Performance and Capacity Engineer
I am an infrastructure engineer at Facebook. I graduated from Penn State with a PhD in 2019. I am interested in optimizing the physical infrastructure of a datacenter viz., power, compute, memory and storage. In my recent works I applied data analytics, system-level profiling and optimizations for efficient datacenter operations.
During PhD, I spent three summers as an intern at Microsoft Research which greatly shaped my research directions. My work on flash reliability titled, SSD failures in datacenters: What? When? Why? was awarded Best Student Paper at SYSTOR-2016. I have also received outstanding graduate research assistant award at Penn State in 2018.Datacenter-Scale Computing, Evaluation and Measurement Of Real Systems, 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
Carnegie Mellon University
I am a PhD candidate in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Carnegie Mellon and a member of the ABSTRACT research group led by Professor Brandon Lucia. My research interests include computer architecture and hardware/software codesign for resource constrained, embedded devices. My current research focuses on programming and execution models for intermittently powered, energy harvesting devices.Architectural Support For Programming Languages Or Software Development, Evaluation and Measurement Of Real Systems, Iot, Mobile and Embedded Architecture
