2007- Li-Shiuan Peh

BECA (Borg Early Career Award)
2007 Recipient

Li-Shiuan Peh
Princeton University

The Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research (CRA-W) is pleased to announce the recipient of the 2007 Borg Early Career Award. This year's recipient is Li-Shiuan Peh, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University.

The award honors the late Anita Borg, who was an early member of CRA-W and an inspiration for her commitment in increasing the participation of women in computing research. This award is given annually by CRA-W to a woman in computer science and/or engineering who has made significant research contributions and who has contributed to her profession, especially in the outreach to women. This award recognizes work in areas of academia and industrial/government research labs that has had a positive and significant impact on advancing women in the computing research community and is targeted at women that are relatively early in their careers (for example, for the 2008 award, the nominee should have received their PhD no earlier than September 2000).

Li-Shiuan Peh has been an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University since 2002. She graduated with a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University in 2001, and a B.S. in Computer Science from the National University of Singapore in 1995. Her research focuses on low-power interconnection networks, on-chip networks and parallel computer architectures, and is funded by several grants from the National Science Foundation, the DARPA MARCO Gigascale Systems Research Center as well as Intel Corporation. She was awarded the Sloan Research Fellowship in 2006, and the NSF CAREER award in 2003. She has been involved in the organization and participation of several outreach activities as the faculty co-adviser of the Princeton Graduate Women in Science and Engineering (GWISE) since 2003, organizing activities both within and beyond Princeton such as an annual event for 100+ high school girls in New York City targeted at attracting women into Engineering since 2004, and a career workshop at Princeton for women undergraduates and graduates from universities in the tri-state area in 2006. She has also organized and participated at a NSF-funded CRA-W/CDC Computer Architecture Summer Workshop for minorities in computer architecture, and spoke at a distinguished women faculty lecture series at UT Austin.
