Sloan Research Fellowships seek to stimulate fundamental research by early-career scientists and scholars of outstanding promise. These two-year fellowships are awarded yearly to 126 researchers in the fields of chemistry, computational or evolutionary molecular biology, computer science, economics, mathematics, neuroscience, ocean sciences, and physics, in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions.
Among the 16 computer scientists selected as 2013 Sloan Research Fellows are two UW CSE Ph.D. alums:
Krzysztof Gajos, an expert in human-computer interaction, is an assistant professor in the School of Engineering and Applied Physics at Harvard.
Chris Re, an expert in data management, is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
Congratulations to Krzysztof and Chris!!
