Radha Venkatagiri is an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University. She received her doctoral degree in computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2020. Her research interests lie in the area of computer architecture and systems. Venkatagiri’s dissertation work aims to build efficient computing systems that redefine “correctness” as producing results that are good enough to ensure an acceptable user experience. Venkatagiri’s research work has been nominated to the IBM Pat Goldberg Memorial Best Paper Award for 2019 and she is the recipient of the W. J. Poppelbaum Memorial Award for 2020. She was among a select few people invited to participate in an exploratory workshop on error-efficient computing systems initiated by the Swiss National Science Foundation and is one of 200 young researchers in Math and Computer Science worldwide to be selected for the prestigious 2018 Heidelberg Laureate Forum. Venkatagiri was selected for the Rising Stars in EECS and the Rising Stars in Computer Architecture (RISC-A) workshops for the year 2019.

Venkatagiri spent the last year working as a post-doctoral researcher at AMD Research. Before her doctoral work, Venkatagiri was a CPU/Silicon validation engineer at Intel where her work won a divisional award for key contributions in validating new industry standard CPU features. Prior to that, she worked briefly at Qualcomm on architectural verification of the Snapdragon processor.
