Princeton is on a bit of a winning streak when it comes to ACM’s annual Maurice Wilkes Award for contributions to computer architecture in the first 20 years of someone’s career.

This year it went to David M. Brooks, Gordon McKay Professor of Computer Science in the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, who earned his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Princeton in 2001.

Last year Kevin Skadron, who earned his Ph.D. in computer science from Princeton in 1999, won the same prize. He is a professor of computer science at the University of Virginia.

Margaret Martonosi, Hugh Trumbull Adams ’35 Professor of Computer Science, was Brooks’s thesis adviser and co-adviser to Skadron along with Doug Clark, professor of computer science.
