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.


Estrin was previously a Professor of Computer Science and the founding director of the NSF-funded Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS) at UCLA.

In 2003, Popular Science named her one of their "Brilliant 10" for that year.[1]

In 2007, Estrin 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.[2]

Deborah Estrin received the degree honoris causa from EPFL in 2008 during the master ceremony.[3] She also received an honorary doctorate degree from Uppsala University, Sweden in 2011.[4]

In 2012, Cornell Tech announced Estrin as the first academic hire to the high-tech campus in New York City. [5]

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.
