|Lisa Hsu, a graduate student in Computer Science and Engineering, was recently awarded an Intel Foundation Ph.D. Fellowship. This program awards two-year fellowships to Ph.D. candidates pursuing leading-edge research in fields related to Intel's business and research interests.|
"My research," said Hsu, "is about cache resource allocation in large scale chip multiprocessors. As CMPs become more prevalent, particularly in the server domain, I'm trying to come up with simple, scalable, and effective algorithms to manage a shared cache resource amongst many competing elements, some of which may be more important than others and require a higher quality of service than other elements."
Originally from San Diego, CA, Lisa came to Michigan after graduating from Princeton University in 2002 with a degree in Electrical Engineering. She has been a Peer Advisor for incoming women to the department since 2003, and is an active member of the computer science graduate student group, CSEG. She also participates in sprint triathlons!
