Li-Shiuan Peh, associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science, receives professorship from the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology.
Li-Shiuan Peh, associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science, has been appointed as a 2016 Singapore Research Professor.
Peh has been conducting research in the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), a major research enterprise established by MIT in partnership with the National Research Foundation of Singapore (NRF) in 2007.
Her research focuses on low-power interconnection networks, on-chip networks, and parallel computer architectures. Peh coins her research thrust as “network-driven computing,” where the architecture of future computer chips is more significantly driven by how cores are interconnected, rather than the design of the cores themselves. Her research has motivated, proposed and prototyped these on-chip networks, so as to enable the continued scaling of Moore's Law into future many-core chips.
Peh is also involved in the SMART Low Energy Electronic Systems (LEES) research group, which aims to find a new innovation path in the semiconductor industry to create novel integrated circuits. LEES Interdisciplinary Research Group (IRG) is structured as a vertically-integrated organization, having expertise in research from materials-to-circuits. The LEES research process relies on iterative innovation in which the various researchers create self-organized constraints through their work, allowing research to have maximum potential impact in the marketplace.
