Faculty Profile: Keren Bergman

Keren Bergman

Charles Batchelor Professor of Electrical Engineering


As director of Columbia’s Lightwave Research Laboratory, Bergman leads multiple research programs on optical interconnection networks for advanced computing systems, data centers, optical packet-switched routers and nanophotonic networks-on-chip for chip multiprocessors. She is developing a new class of nanoscale photonic interconnect technologies that seamlessly move data from on-chip networks, across memory and large computing systems with extreme energy efficiency. These future platforms, driven by nanophotonic-enabled interconnectivity, and the enormous bandwidth advantage of dense wavelength division multiplexing, will fundamentally transform the computation-communications architecture, to create systems able to meet explosive information demands at all scales.
