Woman computer scientist of the week
Jean Jennings Bartik was one of the original programmers for the ENIAC computer. She studied mathematics in school then began work at the University of Pennsylvania, first manually calculating ballistics trajectories, then using ENIAC to do so. She and her colleagues developed and codified many of the fundamentals of programming while working on the ENIAC, since it was the first computer of its kind. After her work on ENIAC, Bartik went on to work on BINAC and UNIVAC, and spent time at a variety of technical companies as a writer, manager, engineer and programmer. She spent her later years as a real estate agent and died in 2011 from congestive heart failure complications.

Woman computer scientist of the week
Dr. Elaine Surick Oran is an American physical scientist and is considered a world authority on numerical methods for large-scale simulation of physical systems. She has pioneered computational technology for the solution of complex reactive flow problems, unifying concepts from science, mathematics, engineering and computer science in a new methodology. An incredibly diverse range of phenomena can be modeled and better understood using Dr. Oran’s techniques for numerical simulation of fluid flows, ranging from the tightly-grouped movements of fish in Earth’s oceans to the explosions of far-flung supernovae in space. Her work has contributed significantly to the advancement of the engineering profession.

Margaret Martonosi is an American computer scientist noted for her research in computer architecture and mobile computing with a particular focus on power-efficiency. In the area of power-aware computer architecture, Martonosi is known for her work on the Wattch power modeling infrastructure. Among the first architecture-level power modeling tools, Wattch demonstrated that early-stage power modeling tools could be accurate enough to allow computer architects to assess processor power consumption early enough in the design process for power to have a substantive influence on design choices. Martonosi’s group has also performed research on real-system power measurement, and on power and thermal management.
