Radia Perlman Named Intel Fellow



Intel has appointed Radia Perlman as an Intel Fellow with the specific responsibles for ensuring Intel Labs' leadership in network and security. Intel Fellows are appointed for their technical leadership and contributions to the industry.

Perlman was most recently with Sun Microsystems, where she was a Sun Fellow. Perlman is the inventor of many fundamental technology innovations in computer networking, including the spanning tree algorithm, which is at the heart of today's Ethernet; TRILL, an emerging standard for data center interconnection that can replace today's spanning tree Ethernet; and scalable and robust link state routing technology that is key to the operation of today's Internet.

"We are pleased to have Radia join the Intel team," said Justin Rattner, director of Intel Labs and the company's chief technology officer. "Given the ever-increasing importance of security and the connectedness of the computing continuum, Radia's expertise and leadership will benefit Intel and Intel Labs as we work to deliver breakthrough technologies and bring the benefits of the digital revolution to people across the globe."

Perlman has authored two networking textbooks and earned a Ph.D. from MIT in computer science. She holds approximately 100 patents in encryption, decryption and routing. Perlman has been recognized with numerous industry awards including an honorary doctorate from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, the Usenix Association lifetime achievement award, Silicon Valley Inventor of the year in 2004 and the Women of Vision Award for Innovation in 2005.

Perlman describes some of her work in this Dr. Dobb's interview.
