Marilyn Wolf received her bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1980, 1981, and 1984, respectively. She was with AT&T Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, N.J. from 1984 to 1989 and was with Princeton University from 1989 until 2007. In July 2007, Dr. Wolf joined Georgia Tech as the Rhesa "Ray" S. Farmer, Jr. Distinguished Chair in Embedded Computing Systems and Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar. She has developed a number of techniques for embedded computing, ranging from hardware/software co-design algorithms and real-time scheduling algorithms to code compression and distributed smart cameras. She is a co-founder of Verificon Corporation, which designs smart camera systems. She helped to start several technical conferences, including CODES and MPSoC. She has written four textbooks.
