Sep 15, 2023 —
Intel Corporation has named Cong (Callie) Hao, assistant professor of in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, as one of the 15 recipients of the prestigious Intel Rising Star Faculty Award for 2023.
The Intel® Rising Star Faculty Award (RSA) program annually recognizes early-career academic researchers who are at the forefront of technological research with the potential to reshape industries. The program provides both a monetary award and hopes to facilitate long-term collaborative relationships with senior technical leaders at Intel. Award recipients are also chosen for their innovative teaching methods and for their efforts to improve the fields of computer science and engineering.
Hao joined ECE as a postdoctoral researcher in 2020, before joining the faculty in 2021. She is currently holds the Sutterfield Family Early Career Professorship.
Hao supervises six students in her Software/Hardware Co-design (Sharc) Lab, exploring the joint area of efficient hardware design and machine learning algorithms. Her work led to the first methodology for co-designing Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) and accelerators, a groundbreaking achievement presented at the Design Automation Conference in 2019. Her research has since evolved into a simultaneous co-design paradigm, seamlessly merging the domains of algorithm and accelerator design.
ECE’s Asif Khan was recognized with an Intel Rising Star Award in 2020.
