Prior to joining ASU in 2012, Nadya spent 10 years at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, most recently as the founding Group Leader of the Computing and Analytics Group. In that capacity, Nadya developed, led, and managed research initiatives in advanced analytics, high performance computing systems, and computer architectures to address the challenges facing the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Intelligence Community (IC). Under Nadya’s leadership, the Group’s research portfolio included a wide range of programs funded by DARPA, iARPA, ONR, NGA, USAF, ASD(R&E), and other U.S. Government sponsors.

In 2011, Nadya was awarded the inaugural MIT Lincoln Laboratory Early Career Technical Achievement award recognizing her work in parallel computing, computer architectures, and graph processing algorithms and her leadership in anomaly detection in graphâ??based data (presented to 2 employees under 35). She has over 60 publications and presentations, holds a patent, and has served as a chair and member of multiple technical and organizational committees. Nadya received bachelor and master degrees in Computer Science from Cornell University, is a Senior Member of IEEE, and a Member of ACM.
