Marilyn C. Wolf


Biography[edit source]

Marilyn C. Wolf has enabled a new generation of researchers to conceptualize, build, and validate modern embedded computing systems through influential textbooks, high-impact conferences, and mentoring graduate students. These computers embedded within physical objects power our world in transportation, healthcare, and many other disciplines. Wolf wrote one of the first textbooks in the field, Computers as Components: Principles of Embedded Computing System Design, as well as High-Performance Embedded Computing: Applications in Cyber-Physical Systems and Mobile Computing, which is geared specifically to graduate courses. She has helped to create many of the technical meetings and technical publications in the field, including Embedded Systems Week and the journal Design Automation for Embedded Systems, providing essential forums for graduate students.

An IEEE Fellow, Wolf is the Elmer E. Koch Professor of Engineering and Director of the School of Computing at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, Lincoln, NE, USA.
