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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Shuang Chen is a third-year Ph.D. student in the Computer Systems Lab at Cornell University, advised by Prof. José F. Martínez and Prof. Christina Delimitrou. She is generally interested in computer architecture and systems, with a focus on datacenters and architectural support for emerging memory technologies.Architecture For Emerging Technologies and Applications, Datacenter-Scale Computing, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
Broadly speaking, I'm interested in computer architecture, particularly parallel systems. Prior work has included workload characterization of parallel applications and memory systems in traditional multiprocessor systems and GPUs. Recent work explores correctness in IoT systems.

University of California, Riverside
Elaheh Sadredini is an assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC Riverside. She received her Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Virginia in 2019, advised by Professor Kevin Skadron, and she was a member at the Center for Research on Intelligent Storage and Processing in Memory (CRISP). Her research focus is on developing specialized, near-memory, and in-memory hardware accelerators for big data applications, including natural language processing, data mining, and bioinformatics. Her research has resulted in several publications at top-tier venues (such as MICRO, ASPLOS, HPCA, ICS, and KDD) and several patents and patent applications. Elaheh is the recipient of several awards, including the John A. Stankovic Graduate Research Award from the UVA Department of Computer Science for outstanding research in 2019 and the UVA International Students Office Graduation Award for Academic Excellence in 2019. She also received the best paper awards at the ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers in 2016, the “Best of CAL” award in 2019, and a nomination for the best paper award at IISWC’19, FCCM’20, and HPCA’20.Accelerator-Based, Application-Specific and Reconfigurable Architecture, Architecture For Emerging Technologies and Applications, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
Indian Institute of Technology Bombay
Antara is doing a PhD at Computer Architecture and Dependable Systems Lab (CADSL), IIT Bombay in collaboration with the University of Tokyo. She is an Intel India PhD fellow and Google WomenTechmaker Asia-Pacific scholar. She is currently interning at Microarchitecture Research Labs (MRL), Intel India. Her areas of interest include near-data processing, 3D DRAMs, convolutional neural network, non-von Neumann architecture and related topics. She has worked on multicore cache coherence protocols during her masters at IIIT Delhi. Her work on dual-port SRAMs with ST Microelectronics was published in VDAT’16. She interned at SanDisk where she designed a digital duty cycle corrector for NAND flash high-speed interface. She has also worked in automotive electronics at TATA Motors Sanand plant.Accelerator-Based, Application-Specific and Reconfigurable Architecture, Architecture For Emerging Technologies and Applications, Architecture Modeling and Simulation Methodologies, Effects Of Circuits Or Technology On Architecture, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
