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.
Anne Bracy is a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Cornell University. Prior to teaching at Cornell, Dr. Bracy was a Principal Lecturer and Coordinator of Undergraduate Research in Computer Science at Washington University in St Louis. She was also a Research Scientist at the Microarchitecture Research Lab at Intel in Santa Clara, California.
Dr Bracy received her PhD from University of Pennsylvania for her work on instruction fusion under the supervision of Amir Roth. Prior to her doctoral studies she was a student at Stanford University, where she was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.Architecture Modeling and Simulation Methodologies, Instruction, Thread and Data-Level Parallelism
I'm broadly interested in computer architecture, particularly memory systems and the management and synchronization of data. I like building whole, balanced systems and understanding how all the pieces are connected, related, and affect each other.Accelerator-Based, Application-Specific and Reconfigurable Architecture, Architecture Modeling and Simulation Methodologies, Instruction, Thread and Data-Level Parallelism, Multiprocessor Systems, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
University of Cambridge
Noa Zilberman is a Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge Computer Science and Technology Department. Her research focuses on high performance systems, combining aspects of computer networks, computer architecture, reconfigurable hardware and systems. She has over 15 years of industrial experience, in design, management and architecture roles. In her last role before joining Cambridge, she was a Senior Principal Chip Architect at Broadcom's Network Switching group. In Cambridge she is a PI on multiple projects studying high performance networked-systems and the Chief Architect of the NetFPGA-SUME platform, an open source platform for networking research.
Noa is a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow, a Newton Trust Research Fellow, a Wolfson College Research Fellow (Title BI) and a Senior Member of IEEE. She received her PhD in Electrical Engineering from Tel-Aviv University.
UC Santa Barbara
I am a PhD candidate in the ECE department of University of California, Santa Barbara under the guidance of Prof. Yuan Xie. I got my Master's degree also from UC Santa Barbara in 2015. I completed my undergraduate studies in the ECE department of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2014.
My current research explores the design space of the memory fabric in memory-centric system architectures, given the emerging memory technologies and integration trends, to identify bottlenecks and trade-offs and proposes scalable solutions.Architecture For Emerging Technologies and Applications, Datacenter-Scale Computing, Effects Of Circuits Or Technology On Architecture, Interconnection Network, Router and Network Interface Architecture, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
We regularly organize a social gathering of women at the start of major architecture conferences (ISCA, HPCA, ASPLOS and MICRO). These meet ups help newcomers to our conferences become better integrated in the community and reduce some of the pressure and intimidation they might feel at their first conference. They provide great networking opportunities. We hope to see you at the next one!
Would you like to attend a SIGARCH-sponsored event, but cannot because the cost of child-care is prohibitive? SIGARCH provides funds for a limited number of grants that support child care for members that would like to participate in a SIGARCH-sponsored event but are unable to do so without this support. SIGARCH provides financial assistance to subsidize a variety of child-care options. View details here.
Annually, we provide a brochure of upcoming female graduates in computer architecture. The goal of this brochure is to bring greater visibility to women on the job market and to celebrate their success as PhD students.
Check out our WICARCH YouTube channel which features recorded technical talks by members of the WICARCH community.
We organize various initiatives to better connect women in computer architecture.

Join Our Slack Channel
We offer an informal mentoring program through our slack channel (wicarch.slack.com). Women at all career stages are encouraged to join. The mentoring program provides an easy way to connect with other women and receive advice on a wide range of career and personal issues.
If you need assistance in joining our mailing list or slack channel, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
