Didem Unat of Koç University has been named the winner of the 2021 ACM SIGHPC Emerging Woman Leader in Technical Computing award. Unat was recognized for innovations in the field of programming models for data locality in high performance and scientific computing and for her leadership role in the international high performance computing community.
Unat's work on simplifying software development for current and future supercomputing architectures resulted in architecture-independent abstractions. These allow for the development of scientific software that maps to complex memory hierarchies and accelerator structures, with high-performance results.
"Unat's rigorous technical work has directly impacted the productivity of application scientists," says award committee chair Cristina Beldica of Intel. " This is critical not only for high performance computing, but science in general."
