ACM and the IEEE Computer Society have named Princeton University's Margaret Martonosi recipient of the 2021 Eckert-Mauchly Award for her role in designing, modeling, and confirming power-efficient computer architecture.

Martonosi was a pioneer in the design and modeling of power-aware microarchitectures, including the use of narrow bit-widths, thermal-issue modeling and response, and conducting power estimation.

Martonosi and co-author David Brooks greatly reduced processor power consumption through a paper that introduced two optimizations.

She and Brooks later demonstrated that a central processing unit can be engineered for a much lower maximum power rating, and minimally impact typical applications.

Martonosi also presented the potential of fast, early-stage, formal methods to verify the correctness of memory consistency model deployment, through the Check verification tool suite.
