2016 Grad Fellows
NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Results for 2016
We are excited to announce the 2016 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 2016 NVIDIA Graduate Fellows:
- Saman Ashkiani, University of California at Davis
- Yong He, Carnegie Mellon University
- Yatish Turakhia, Stanford University
- Minjie Wang, New York University
- Jiajun Wu, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
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:
- Gang Wu, University of Sussex
We would also like to acknowledge our six finalists:
- Ahmed Elkholy, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
- Achuta Kadambi, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Caroline Trippel, Princeton
- Yu-Hang Tang, Brown University
- Ling-Qi Yan, University of California at Berkeley
This is the fifteenth 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!
