Meyrem Kırman
Ph.D. '10, Cornell University

mkirman at csl.cornell.edu


I am a research staff member at Intel Labs, Barcelona (Spain) since February 2010. I obtained my Ph.D. under the advising of Prof. José Martínez. My research interests include checkpointed processor architectures, reconfigurable architectures, on-chip interconnect and memory-system design for chip multiprocessors.

I completed BS degrees in Computer Engineering and in Electronics Engineering in 2002 and 2003, respectively, both from Istanbul Technical University (ITU), and joined Cornell's MS/Ph.D. program in Fall 2003. I held a McMullen graduate fellowship during the 2003-04 academic year. I was also a recipient of Intel Research Foundation graduate fellowship between 2006-08.
