Radia Perlman is a Fellow at Intel Labs. Her contributions to layers 2 and 3 of networking include making link state routing stable and scalable, and the specific protocol she designed for DECnet in the 1980’s (IS-IS) remains deployed in many ISPs today.  She also designed the spanning tree protocol which has been the backbone of Ethernet technology for several decades, as well as the more recent TRILL technology, which has been standardized by IETF. She has also made significant contributions in network security including assured delete of data, networks resilient to malicious failure of trusted components, and authentication and authorization models. She also is credited with being the inventor of "tangible computing", a concept of making programming concepts accessible to young children by having commands be physical objects that are assembled into a program.

Dr. Perlman has taught at MIT and Harvard, and is currently an affiliate professor at University of Washington and adjunct professor at Chinese University of Hong Kong.

She is the author of the textbook “Interconnections: Bridges, Routers, Switches and Internetworking Protocols”, and coauthor of “Network Security: Private Communication in a Public World".  She holds over 100 issued patents, a PhD in computer science from MIT, an honorary doctorate from KTH, and numerous industry awards including lifetime achievement awards from Usenix and ACM SIGCOMM.
