G. Edward Suh promoted to Full Professor

ECE’s Gookwon Edward Suh has been promoted to the rank of Full Professor following approval from the Cornell University Board of Trustees, effective January 1, 2019.

Suh joined the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University as an assistant professor in 2007. His research group works on all aspects of computer architecture with a focus on the design of efficient (high-performance, low-energy) and secure computing systems. The group is part of the Computer Systems Laboratory at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Suh is interested in combining architectural techniques with low-level software to enhance various aspects of computing systems such as performance, security and reliability. His recent research efforts focus on building verifiably secure computing systems with an application to secure autonomous driving, and developing architecture frameworks and design methodologies for efficient parallel hardware accelerators.

Suh’s research and teaching have been recognized with several awards including a Most Frequently Cited Paper Award, 2000-2009 from the Symposium on VLSI Circuits (2017), an ASPLOS Most Influential Paper Award (2014), the Michael Tien '72 Excellence in Teaching Award from Cornell Engineering (2014), an Army Young Investigator Research Program Award (2011), an NSF Early CAREER Award (2008), an Air Force Young Investigator Research Program Award (2008), Distinguished Practical Paper Award at the 39th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (2018), and a best paper award at the IASTED International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing Systems (2001).

Suh received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with his work on a single-chip secure processor. Following MIT, he spent a year at Verayo Inc., where he led the development of unclonable RFIDs and secure embedded processors.

Rick Johnson, an engineering professor on the Hill—and, at the risk of a mixed metaphor, something of a Renaissance man. At Cornell since 1981, Johnson has spent decades teaching and doing research in electrical engineering, particularly in the fields of control systems and signal processing. But over the past twelve years, his interests have entailed as much art as science. A pioneer in the field of computational art history, Johnson leverages both his engineering acumen and his abiding passion for art to study the physical materials with which works are made.
