Honors

The following list includes research and teaching awards I have won:
  • 2015 University of Michigan College of Engineering Research Excellence Award
  • 2013 IEEE Senior Membership
  • 2012 Richard Newton GSRC Industrial Impact Award for "development of the DIVA technology". The Richard Newton GSRC Industrial Impact Award is an annual award given by the GSRC DARPA/MARCO center that recognizes research that is "at least five years old and has had significant industrial impact."
  • 2010 GSRC Margarida Jacome Best Poster/Demo Award, given to graduate student Andrea Pellegrini and Profs. Valeria Bertacco and Todd Austin for demo of the work from "Fault-Based Attack of RSA Authentication", September 2010.
  • 2009 Ted Kennedy Family Team Excellence Award, given to Profs. Austin, Blaauw, Mahlke, Mudge, and Papaefthymiou for work in low-power research and design, February 2009.
  • 2008 Richard Newton GSRC Industrial Impact Award for "development of the Razor technology" (awarded to Profs. Todd Austin and David Blaauw). The Richard Newton GSRC Industrial Impact Award is an annual award given by the GSRC DARPA/MARCO center that recognizes research that is "at least five years old and has had significant industrial impact."
  • 2007 Maurice Wilkes Award for "innovative contributions in Computer Architecture including the SimpleScalar Toolkit and the DIVA and Razor architectures.", June 2007.
  • Microprocessor Report Analysts' Choice Award for Innovation, 2007, for "introducing and implementing Razor technology", April 2007.
