Steven M. Nowick is Professor of Computer Science (and, by courtesy, Electrical Engineering). He is a co-founder and former chair of the Computer Engineering Program at Columbia University. He received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University in 1993, and a B.A. from Yale University in 1976. My main research interests are: design and optimization of asynchronous and mixed-timing digital systems (globally-asynchronous locally-synchronous [GALS]); scalable high-performance and low-power on-chip networks for parallel processors and embedded systems; computer-aided digital design and optimization (CAD); fault tolerance and reliability; and ultra-low-energy systems.
