• Rutgers spelled out in hedges

Congratulations to Prof. Kostas Bekris and his group for receiving two new grants. The first is a grant associated with the 2013 NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship (previously awarded to his student Zakary Littlefied). This grant will total $272K over four years. The second grant is a $40K travel grant from NSF for his proposal to the US-Israel Collaboration in Computer Science. Over the next three years, this grant will allow Kostas’s group to visit and collaborate with Dr. Dan Halperin’s group in Tel Aviv University, which is very active and prominent in computational geometry and robot motion planning.
