Assistant Professor Reetuparna Das has been inducted into the IEEE/ACM MICRO Hall of Fame, an honor given to outstanding researchers with eight or more papers at the International Symposium on Microarchitecture. The symposium is organized by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Microarchitecture, SIGMICRO, whose members include researchers and practitioners of computer architecture, microarchitecture and compilers.

MICRO is the flagship conference for microprocessor architecture and one of the top-tier computer architecture conferences. Technology discovered at MICRO has been incorporated into modern microprocessors over the past fifty years.

“I am honored to be part of MICRO Hall of Fame, along side numerous architecture luminaries. I look forward to continue pushing the frontiers of processor design and transferring these exciting technologies to commercial systems,” says Das.

Some of Das’ recent projects include in-memory architectures, fine-grain heterogeneous core architectures for mobile systems, and low-power scalable interconnects for kilo-core processors. Her thesis research, focused on application-aware on-chip interconnects was recognized by an IEEE Top Picks award. Her recent work has produced innovative hardware designs for in-memory computing, which could have a significant impact on Big Data and cognitive computing system design. This line of work received best Demo award in Center for Future Architectures Research’s annual review by based on popular vote from industry sponsors and faculty PIs. The project was selected from 50 projects from leading University research groups. She has received outstanding research and teaching assistantship awards from the Computer Science and Engineering department at Pennsylvania State University. She was awarded the NSF CAREER award in her first year as a tenure-track Assistant Professor. Professor Das has authored over 50 articles in peer reviewed journals and conferences, and filed 7 patents.

She received her PhD in Computer Science and Engineering from Pennsylvania State University, University Park in 2010 and joined the faculty of CSE at the University of Michigan in January 2016. Prior to this she was research scientist at Intel Labs and researcher-in-residence for Center for Future Architectures Research (C-FAR).

Prof. Das describes her work in the field of computer architecture, where she designs on-chip networks for multicore processors and near data computing architectures that improve performance by putting computer with data.
