Google Research is recognizing four College of Computing faculty members with funding support for research in a number of computer science-related fields.

The winners of the 2018 Google Faculty Research Awards were announced in a March 15 post on the Google AI Blog. According to the entry, only 158 of the 910 proposals submitted for 2018 awards – about 15 percent – were selected for funding.

Winning 2018 Google Faculty Research Awards are:

  • Melody Jackson, School of Interactive Computing professor – Physical Interfaces
  • Taesoo Kim, School of Computer Science, Catherine M. and James E. Allchin Early Career Assistant Professor – Systems
  • Thomas Ploetz, School of Interactive Computing associate professor – Mobile
  • Le Song, School of Computational Science & Engineering associate professor – Machine Learning & Data Mining

The awards are based in part on budgets the faculty members included with their respective proposals. Generally speaking, the awards are designed to cover a year’s worth of salary, tuition, and some conference travel for one graduate student working on accepted research projects.
