Dorit Nuzman joined IBM's Haifa Research Laboratory in 2001. She received a B.A. degree in computer science from the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology in 1998 and an M.Sc. degree in computer science from the University of Maryland in 2000. Since 2001, she has been with the code optimization technologies group at the IBM Research Lab in Haifa. Specializing in auto-vectorization, she has worked on compiler optimizations for various vector platforms (including the eLite DSP, the iVMX accelerator, Cell B.E., and various general purpose SIMD extensions), and initiated and led the auto-vectorization effort in the GCC compiler of the Free Software Foundation (FSF) between 2003-2009. Recently, Dorit has been involved in feedback-directed optimizations and dynamic compilation for static languages. Additional compilation related research and development activities have included: parallel-programming models, compiling for fine-grained multi-threading, post-link optimizations, instruction scheduling, compiling for streaming architectures, XML compilation and Schema/XPath acceleration, and split compilation.
