Lucia receives IEEE TCCA Young Computer Architect Award

Brandon Lucia, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, has been selected to receive the 2019 IEEE Young Computer Architect Award from the IEEE Technical Committee on Computer Architecture (TCCA).

The award is granted to an individual who has made outstanding research contributions to the field of computer architecture and received their Ph.D. within the past six years and. Lucia, who earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Washington in 2013, has been working at the intersection of computer architecture, computer systems, and programming languages since joining Carnegie Mellon University in 2015.

Lucia was selected for his “pioneering research in parallel debugging and intermittent computing.” Lucia and his students are developing computer architectures, programming languages, and software for physically constrained computer systems, including intermittent and energy-harvesting computers and edge computer systems on Earth and in space.

The award was presented to Lucia at a lunch reception during the 46th International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA) in Phoenix, Arizona.
