CSE alum Ratul Mahajan wins SIGCOMM Rising Star Award

ratulRatul Mahajan, a 2005 UW CSE Ph.D. alumnus now working at Microsoft Research, has received the 2009 SIGCOMM Rising Star Award.

Each year, ACM SIGCOMM presents the “Rising Star” Award, recognizing a young researcher – an individual no older than 35 – who has made outstanding research contributions to the field of communication networks during this early part of their career.  Depth, impact, and novelty of the researcher’s contributions are key criteria upon which the Rising Star Award Committee evaluates the nominees. Also of particular interest are strong research contributions made independently from the nominee’s PhD advisor.

Congratulations Ratul!
