Professor Christopher Batten has been named as a recipient of the 2013 Intel Early Career Faculty Honor Program (ECFHP) Award. The ECFHP was created to help Intel connect with the best and brightest early-career faculty members at the top universities around the world.
Through this program, Intel provides financial and networking support to those faculty members who are early in their careers and who show great promise as future academic leaders in disruptive computing technologies. The purpose of this Program is to help promote the careers of these promising faculty members and to foster long-term collaborative relationships with senior technical leaders at Intel.
Awardees are chosen through an annual competitive nomination and selection process at select schools in the US, EU, China, and Taiwan. Awardees are given a significant cash award to fund their travel to Intel for networking purposes and to help advance their research agenda.
Christopher Batten is an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University, where he leads a research group focusing on energy-efficient parallel computer architecture for both high-performance and embedded applications. His work has been recognized with several awards including an NSF CAREER award (2012), a DARPA Young Faculty Award (2012), and an IEEE Micro Top Picks selection (2004). Prior to his appointment at Cornell, Batten received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering and computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2010.
