Alumnus Jongouk Choi awarded 2023 ACM SIGBED Paul Caspi Memorial Dissertation Award
Alumnus Jongouk Choi (PhD 2022) has received the 2023 ACM SIGBED Paul Caspi Memorial Dissertation Award. This prestigious award was established in 2013 and recognizes outstanding doctoral dissertations that significantly advance the state of the art in the science of embedded systems, in the spirit and legacy of Dr. Paul Caspi’s work.
Choi's dissertation, titled "High-Performance and Reliable Intermittent Computation," addresses critical aspects of improving the quality of service and resolving reliability challenges in energy harvesting systems. His research covers a wide range of topics and he works to develop architecture/compiler co-design solutions to improve performance, reduce hardware complexity, and address reliability/security problems.
Choi was advised by Associate Professor Changhee Jung, he offered the following. "Dr. Jongouk Choi's well-deserved recognition with the 2023 ACM SIGBED Paul Caspi Memorial Dissertation Award speaks volumes about the excellence of his research in embedded systems, particularly in the realm of energy harvesting systems.”
He added, “His comprehensive contributions spanning compilers, runtime systems, and computer architecture, aimed at enhancing reliability and quality of service, set a remarkable precedent for the field and underline the significance of his work for the embedded systems community and beyond.”

Choi was honored with this recognition during the 2023 Embedded Systems Week (ESWEEK), which was held from September 17-22, 2023, in Hamburg, Germany. ESWEEK is a prominent event that brings together conferences, tutorials, and workshops focused on advancing research in embedded systems.
Choi currently serves as an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Central Florida, where his contributions continue to influence the fields of computer science and embedded systems.
About the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University
Founded in 1962, the Department of Computer Science was created to be an innovative base of knowledge in the emerging field of computing as the first degree-awarding program in the United States. The department continues to advance the computer science industry through research. US News & Reports ranks Purdue CS #20 and #18 overall in graduate and undergraduate programs respectively, 6th in cybersecurity, 8th in software engineering, 13th in programming languages and systems, 15th in data analytics, and 18th in theory. Graduates of the program are able to solve complex and challenging problems in many fields. Our consistent success in an ever-changing landscape is reflected in the record undergraduate enrollment, increased faculty hiring, innovative research projects, and the creation of new academic programs. The increasing centrality of computer science in academic disciplines and society, and new research activities - centered around data science, artificial intelligence, programming languages, theoretical computer science, machine learning, and cybersecurity - are the future focus of the department. cs.purdue.edu
