Short Bio:  Moinuddin Qureshi is a Professor of Computer Science at the Georgia Institute of Technology. His research interests include computer architecture, hardware security, and quantum computing. Qureshi received his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in 2007. He was a research scientist at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center (2007-2011), where he developed the caching algorithms for Power 7 Systems. Qureshi received the 2022 ACM SIGARCH Maurice Wilkes Award for contributions to high-performance memory systems.  He is a member of Hall-of-Fame of the trifecta of architecture conferences: ISCA, MICRO, and HPCA. His research has been recognized with multiple best-paper awards and multiple IEEE Top-Picks awards. His papers were also awarded the 2019 NVMW Persistent Impact Prize and 2021 NVMW Persistent Impact Prize, in recognition of "exceptional impact on the fields of study related to non-volatile memories". Qureshi received the 2020 "Outstanding Researcher Award" from Intel and an "Outstanding Technical Achievement Award" from IBM Research.
