Biography

Gabriela Nicolescu obtained her B. Sc. A and her MSc degree from Politechnica Bucharest.

She obtained her PhD degree, in 2002, from INPG (Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble) in France, with the award for Best Thesis in Microelectronics. 

She has been working at Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal (Canada) since august 2003, where she is a professor in the Computer and Software Engineering Department.

Dr. Nicolescu's research interests are in the field of design methodologies, programming and security for systems with advanced technologies, such as 3D multi-processor systems-on-chip integrating liquid cooling and optical networks. She published five books and she is the author of more than hundred articles in journals, international conferences and of book chapters.
