Margaret Martonosi has been on the Princeton faculty since 1994. In addition to Computer Science and Keller, she has also served as Associate Dean of SEAS and as a Jefferson Science Fellow within the U.S. Department of State. Martonosi's research is in computer architecture, where her work has included the widely-used Wattch power modeling tool and the Princeton ZebraNet mobile sensor network project for the design and real-world deployment of zebra tracking collars in Kenya. Her current research focuses on hardware-software interface issues in both classical and quantum computing systems. Martonosi is a Fellow of IEEE and ACM. Notable awards include the 2018 IEEE Computer Society Technical Achievement Award, 2010 Princeton University Graduate Mentoring Award, and the 2013 NCWIT Undergraduate Research Mentoring Award. Martonosi is an inventor on seven granted US patents, one licensed for broad industry use.
What are your responsibilities at the Keller Center?
As the faculty director of the center, I lead its efforts to achieve its mission of bridging tech-society issues across campus, and catalyzing cross-cutting educational efforts, particularly in entrepreneurship and design.
What do you appreciate most about the Keller Center?
Keller is a place that shows Princetonians the rich and unique pathways that are available to them, both while they are here at Princeton and in their subsequent career. Keller lets students see the broad and interdisciplinary connections between their major and other topic areas, and it lets them learn more about leveraging their skills and interests on problems important to them and to the world.
