2015 Grad Fellows
NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Results for 2015
We are excited to announce the 2015 NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship recipients!
We know that there is incredibly important work taking place at universities worldwide, and the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program allows us to demonstrate our commitment to academia in supporting research that spans all areas of computing innovation.
We had another record year of applications for the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program and the fellowship committee undertook the very difficult task of reviewing all these applications. All of the research projects were very exciting and selecting the final fellowship recipients was an extremely difficult decision. Chief Scientist, Bill Dally, and the rest of the review committee would like to congratulate the 2015 NVIDIA Graduate Fellows:
- Yu-Hsin Chen, Massachussetts Institute of Technology
- Brian Cheung, University of California at Berkeley
- Felix Heide, University of British Columbia
- Benjamin Keller, University of California at Berkeley
- Gennady Pekhimenko, Carnegie Mellon University
In addition, this year we also have a Graduate Fellow sponsored by our NVIDIA Foundation as part of their Compute the Cure initiative, which aims to advance the fight against cancer:
- John Neylon, University of California at Los Angeles
We would also like to acknowledge our six finalists:
- Neha Agarwal, University of Michigan
- Forrest Iandola, University of California at Berkeley
- Viktor Kampe, Chalmers University of Technology
- Ji Kim, Cornell University
- Jui-Hsien Wang, Cornell University
- Liwei Wang, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
This is the fourteenth year that NVIDIA has invited Ph.D. students to submit their research projects for consideration. Recipients are selected based on their academic achievements, professor nomination, and area of research. We have found this program to be a great way to support academia in its pursuit of cutting edge innovation, as well as an ideal avenue to introduce NVIDIA to the future leaders of our industry.
Congratulations to our new NVIDIA Graduate Fellows!
