Computer Laboratory


Noa Zilberman is a Fellow and an Affiliated Lecturer 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). Amongst others, she led the hardware development of the first 100Gbps traffic manager, and the architecture of Broadcom's StrataDNX BCM88670. Her research interests range from computer architecture, programmable hardware and networking to data science, with a specific interest in the combination of multiple disciplines (and a touch of measurements).
Current research buzzwords include sustainable computing, data systems, performance, networked-systems architectures, rackscale computing, in-network computing and in-network machine learning, converged interconnects, memories architecture and performance, performance measurements, and others.
Noa received her BSC, MSc (both Magna Cum Laude) and PhD in Electrical Engineering from Tel-Aviv University.
