UW CSE Ph.D. student Mayank Goel has been named one of 12 recipients (from 181 nominees!) of 2014 Microsoft Research Ph.D. Fellowships.
Mayank is advised by professors Gaetano Borriello and Shwetak Patel. His research concerns ubiquitous computing and ICTD (information and communication technology for development).
Other recent UW winners of this hugely competitive fellowship are Gabe Cohn and Franzi Roesner in 2012, Morgan Dixon in 2011, Kayur Patel in 2009, and Pravin Bhat, Scott Saponas, and Jon Froehlich in 2008.
Hearty congratulations to Mayank, and warm thanks to Microsoft Research for an extraordinary partnership going back more than two decades.
