Jinwoo Shin, a postdoctoral researcher in the Algorithms & Randomness Center & ThinkTank (ARC), has been awarded the George M. Sprowls Award by MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

Each year, the Sprowls Award is given by the MIT department for the best doctoral thesis in computer science. Shin’s thesis, "Efficient Distributed Medium Access Algorithm," describes using medium access control (MAC) algorithms in designing a high-performance communication network architecture.

Shin received his B.S. degree from Seoul National University, Korea, in 2001 with double majors in mathematics and computer science. In 2010, he received his Ph. D. degree in mathematics from MIT, where his doctoral research focused on understanding and designing distributed algorithmic mechanisms for large complex networks. Shin also developed computer-security software as a programmer for four years in Penta Security Systems in Korea. He is now developing his thesis research with a team at the ARC center.
