CS Welcomes Margo Seltzer as a Canada 150 Research Chair and Cheriton Family Chair in Computer Science

Harvard professor Margo Seltzer will join UBC as the Canada 150 Research Chair in Computer Systems in September 2018, a position that comes with $1 million in federal funding per year for seven years. Seltzer is currently a computer science professor and director of the Center for Research on Computation and Society in the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard. As a researcher, Seltzer delves into problems that are fundamental to how computer systems work, with past research funded by prominent tech companies like Google, Microsoft, IBM, NetApp, and Oracle.

Seltzer’s research focus is broad, ranging from developing hardware to make computers run faster, to applications in machine learning that build models to make predictions, and applications for computer systems in health care. A proven academic leader, Seltzer will also teach undergraduate students, supervise graduate and post-doctoral fellows and provide mentorship to fellow faculty interested in entrepreneurial opportunities for their research.
