Noa is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, and an Isaac Newton Trust Fellow, in the Systems Research Group, University of Cambridge' Department of Computer Science and Technology. In her last roles before joining the Systems Research Group, she was a Senior Principal Chip Architect in Broadcom's Network Switching group, and a researcher in the DIMES project (Tel-Aviv University). Noa received her BSC, MSc and PhD in Electrical Engineering from Tel-Aviv University. She is a Senior Member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and a member of Association for Computing Machinery and Usenix.

Research Interests

Noa’s primary research area is networked systems. She maintains an interest in high performance systems, combining both computer networks and computer architecture. Her work ranges from chip and system level to datacentre and wide area networks level. Consequently, the research focuses on the integration between the micro and the macro level, with a special interest in bridging performance gaps between different disciplines. She has researched open-source networking and computing platforms; network switching architectures; performance benchmarking and analysis; embedding computer architectures within networking devices; rack-scale computing; in-network computing; programmable devices and data-planes; complex networks; Internet measurements and topology; traffic management, queuing and buffering; memory management; interconnect; high speed interfaces.

Noa is an advocate of open source research, including reproducible research and experimentation. Her projects and source code are available online. All her publications are openly available on her website.

Noa promotes equality and diversity in STEM. She was on the board of ACM’s N2Women (2013-2017, for women in networking and communications), the Chair of women@CL (2015-2016, at the Department of Computer Science and Technology), a member of the department’s Equality and Diversity Committee (2015-2017), and others.
