Eve M. Schooler



Dr. Eve M. Schooler is a Networking and Distributed Systems expert. She is an IEEE Fellow (2021) and the co-recipient of the IEEE Internet Award (2020) for her work on control protocols for Internet telephony and multimedia teleconferencing. Her current work focuses on evolving the Internet towards a Sustainable edge-cloud infrastructure and Carbon-aware networking. She is a Visiting Professor of Sustainable Computing at University of Oxford, sponsored by the UK's Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng), as part of a program targeting industry-academia partnership.


She previously held leadership positions in industry, most recently as Principal Engineer and Director of Emerging IoT Networks at Intel, where she was responsible for setting technical and strategic direction for Internet of Things (IoT) standards and innovation, working closely with the Network and Edge business unit (NEX) and the Corporate Strategy Office (CSO). In that capacity, she grounded her work in industrial IoT and video analytics use cases. While at Intel, she led R&D 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 the IoT, and reverse CDNs for aggregated video streams in Smart Cities. Prior to Intel, she held positions at AT&T Labs-Research, USC's Information Sciences Institute (ISI), Apollo Computers (acquired by HP), and Pollere.


Eve has served in leadership positions in various standards organizations, including: the IETF, where she currently serves on the IoT Directorate, co-chairs the COIN (Computing in the Network) research group to investigate network-compute-storage convergence, is transitioning from co-chairing the RAW (Reliable & Available Wireless) working group into the role of secretary for the DetNet (Deterministic Networks) working group, both aimed at enabling L3 network determinism, and in the past co-founded and co-chaired the MMUSIC (Multiparty Multimedia Session Control) working group for many years, where SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) was developed; 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. More recently, she has become interested in the Open Footprint Forum, to standardize the data model that lives behind carbon footprint related data.


She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Computing Research Association in the US, as well as the EU H2020 SPATIAL Project. In addition, she serves on the Advisory Council for the Computing and Information Sciences Department at the University of Delaware College of Engineering. Previously, she was instrumental in establishing ICN-WEN (Information centric networking in wireless edge networks), a program jointly funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Intel, where she sat on its Board of Advisors.


Eve obtained a BS from Yale, MS from UCLA, and PhD from Caltech, all in Computer Science. She has published over 100 publications (cited over 15K times), including as an inventor on over 35 granted or pending patents. At Intel, she was recognized by the Internet of Things Group and Intel's Patent Office as a top innovator.


Eve enjoys combining Technology with the Arts. She was involved in one of 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).


Eve is a devoted champion of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in STEM/STEAM, having supported countless organizations throughout her career, including the Grace Hopper Conference, MentorNet, Sally Ride Science, and UPWARD U.N.I.T.E.S.
