The Rutgers University Computer Science Department is proud to announce Assistant Professor Aaron Bernstein has been named a 2024 Sloan Research Fellow. The 126 early-career scholars represent the most promising scientific researchers working today. Their achievements and potential place them among the next generation of scientific leaders in the U.S. and Canada.

“I feel very honored and excited to receive the Sloan fellowship, and very grateful to my colleagues and the CS department for their guidance and support,” said Bernstein who also shared he was surprised to be chosen for the academic honor.

“Sloan selects people from such a broad spectrum, from so many areas of science – and I work in a somewhat niche area of computer science that isn’t as well known,” said Bernstein, adding he is happy the foundation honored the area he studies within theoretical computer science known as graph algorithms. “I’m excited.”

Winners receive $75,000, which may be spent over a two-year term on any expense supportive of their research which Bernstein plans to use to fund the work of a postdoctoral associate on a new project.
