Congratulations to our undergraduate student, Geet Sethi, an advisee of Prof. Abhishek Bhattacharjee, for winning an honorable mention for the Computing Research Association’s (CRA) Outstanding Undergraduate Male Researcher Award in the PhD-granting institutions category!
To quote the CRA, this year’s nominees were a very impressive group. A number of them were commended for making significant contributions to more than one research project, several were authors or coauthors on multiple papers, others had made presentations at major conferences, and some had produced software artifacts that were in widespread use. Many of the nominees had been involved in successful summer research or internship programs, many had been teaching assistants, tutors, or mentors, and a number had significant involvement in community volunteer efforts. It is quite an honor to be selected for honorable mention.
Geet Sethi will receive a formal recognition from the CRA to commemorate this achievement. Announcement of the awards will be posted on CRA’s website (www.cra.org) later this month. In addition, the January 2016 issue of Computing Research News will include an article on the awards.]]>
