Nortel Networks Assistant Professor
Electrical and Computer Engineering
Benjamin Lee is an assistant professor of
Computer Engineering in
School of Engineering
His research focuses on scalable technologies,
power-efficient computer architectures, and
high-performance applications. To enable
qualitatively new studies in these areas, Benjamin
is particularly interested in statistical
inference and machine learning. He is also
interested in technology, economics, and policy
for environmentally sustainable computing.
He held an NSF Computing Innovation Fellowship at Stanford University (2009), working with Mark Horowitz. He has also held visiting research positions at Microsoft Research, Intel Corporation, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
Benjamin received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Harvard University (2008), working with David Brooks. He received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley (2004) where he worked with Katherine Yelick and James Demmel.
