Delimitrou receives Intel Rising Star Faculty Award
Christina Delimitrou, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, is a recipient of Intel’s 2020 Rising Star Faculty Award. She is one of only ten researchers recognized by Intel for work building disruptive computing technology. The program is designed to foster long-term collaborative relationships with senior technical leaders at Intel.
Delimitrou has developed cluster management systems that introduced a new data-driven approach in cloud management which have been adopted by companies like Twitter and AT&T. Leaders at Intel say she has identified the next big challenge for cloud computing — managing the increasing complexity of cloud applications and data center hardware in a practical, scalable way.
The award will support Delimitrou’s plan to use machine learning techniques to improve the way large-scale cloud and edge systems are designed and managed. “It is particularly valuable as Intel has long-standing expertise on building servers that populate datacenters,” she said.
Her team will use the award’s associated funds to hire graduate students and acquire additional equipment to support their work.
