Eve M. Schooler



Eve M. Schooler is a Principal Engineer and Director of Emerging IoT Networks at Intel. She is responsible for setting technical and strategic direction for IoT standards, and as such straddles the Internet of Things Group (IoTG) and the Next Generation & Standards (NGS) business units. Her current work focuses on developing architectural building blocks to evolve the Internet towards Edge and Fog computing, and in turn to support trusted analytics throughout the infrastructure. While at Intel, she has led projects on a range of topics including collaborative anomaly detection to secure enterprise networks, data privacy-preservation in Smart Homes, energy efficiency for the Smart Grid, IoT reputation services, data-centric networking for a data-centric IoT, and reverse CDNs for aggregated video streams in Smart Cities.


A recognized expert in Networking and Distributed systems, Eve has served in leadership positions in various standards bodies, including: the IETF, where she currently serves on the IoT Directorate, co-chairs the proposed COIN (Computing in the Network) research group, and in the past co-founded and co-chaired the MMUSIC (Multiparty Multimedia Session Control) working group for many years; NIST, where she co-chaired the Cyber-Physical Systems working group on Data interoperability; and in the OpenFog Consortium, where she co-chaired a task group on Smart Objects, to tackle increased IoT heterogeneity. She was instrumental in establishing the ICN-WEN program (Information centric networking in wireless edge networks), a program jointly funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Intel, and currently sits on its Board of Advisors.


Eve obtained a BS from Yale, MS from UCLA, and PhD from Caltech, all in Computer Science. Prior to Intel, she held positions at Apollo Computers (acquired by HP), Information Sciences Institute (ISI), AT&T Labs-Research, and Pollere. She has published over 60 papers (cited over 11K times), holds 14 patents (another 14 pending), and has co-authored several standards, including SIP, a protocol widely used for Internet telephony and multimedia teleconferencing. At Intel, she has been recognized by IoTG and Intel's patent office as a top innovator. She is the co-recipient of the 2020 IEEE Internet Award.


Eve enjoys finding excuses to combine Technology with the Arts. She was involved in one of, if not the first Internet-wide distributed music performances (to showcase synchronization algorithms), has composed and rendered music for a classic SIGGRAPH animation (while demonstrating infrastructure for early grid computing), and arranged music for the BodySynth (a wearable, sensor-based instrument).
