Deborah Estrin (born December 6, 1959) is a Professor of Computer Science at Cornell Tech. She is co-founder of the non-profit Open mHealth and gave a TEDMED talk on small data in 2013.[1]

Estrin is known for her work on sensor networks, participatory sensing, mobile health, and small data. She is one of the most-referenced computer scientists of all time, with her work cited over 128,000 times according to Google Scholar.[2]

In 2009, Estrin was elected a member of the National Academy of Engineering for the pioneering design and application of heterogeneous wireless sensing systems for environmental monitoring.

Career

Estrin earned a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 1985, under the supervision of Jerry Saltzer.[3] She has also received honorary degrees recognizing her work: a degree honoris causa from EPFL in 2008,[4] and an honorary doctorate degree from Uppsala University, Sweden in 2011.[5]

Estrin was a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Southern California between 1986 and 2001, and at theUCLA between 2001 and 2013, where she was the founding director of the NSF-funded Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS). In 2012, Cornell Tech announced Estrin as the first academic hire to the high-tech campus in New York City.[6] At Cornell Tech, Estrin is the Robert V. Tishman '37 Professor of Computer Science.[7] She is also the founder of the Health Tech hub and director of the Small Data Lab,[8] and a member of the Connected Experiences Lab.[9]

Estrin's research has focused on using mobile devices and sensors to collect and analyze data, with applications to health and well-being.[3] Her non-profit startup, Open mHealth, created open data sharing standards and tools that allow developers of health applications to store, process, and visualize data.[10] Her research also explores immersive recommendation systems and the privacy implications of user modeling and data use.[3]

Estrin has received numerous academic and popular recognitions for her research. She was named one of Popular Science's "Brilliant 10" in 2003.[11] In 2007, she was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and in 2009 was inducted into the National Academy of Engineering. She is a fellow of the ACM and the IEEE.[12] In 2018 she was elected as a McArthur Fellow for "Designing open-source platforms that leverage mobile devices and data to address socio-technological challenges such as personal health management".

She is the daughter of the late Gerald Estrin, also a UCLA Computer Science professor, and of the late Thelma Estrin, a pioneering engineer and computer scientist also at UCLA. She is the sister of Judy Estrin, and a wife to Ache Stokelman. She is known for being a great mentor to her students, and for her sense of humor.
