Speaker: Dr. Margaret Martonosi
Margaret Martonosi is the US National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Assistant
Director for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE). With an
annual budget of more than $1B, the CISE directorate at NSF has the mission to
uphold the Nation’s leadership in scientific discovery and engineering innovation
through its support of fundamental research and education in computer and information
science and engineering as well as transformative advances in research
cyberinfrastructure. While at NSF, Dr. Martonosi is on leave from and retains her tenure
at Princeton University where she is the Hugh Trumbull Adams '35 Professor of
Computer Science. Dr. Martonosi's research interests are in computer architecture and
hardware-software interface issues in both classical and quantum computing systems.

Event Type: Computer Science Department Colloquium
Abstract: The National Science Foundation (NSF) supports a majority of US academic research in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) topic areas. Since February, 2020, Dr. Margaret Martonosi serves as NSF CISE AD, stewarding the CISE directorate’s $1B annual budget on behalf of research, education, workforce and infrastructure funding in CISE topic areas and for science as a whole. Martonosi’s talk will present an overview of CISE investments including both technical visions for the field, as well as thoughts on priorities for advancing that vision. Of particular importance are the people issues: Who will we engage in advancing CISE into the future? Martonosi will discuss CISE and NSF investments in broadening participation in computing, from K-12 to senior career stages. Please join us for this highly-interactive session and please bring your input and questions!
