Two computer science and engineering professors were recently recognized for their outstanding work:
- Jenna Wiens, co-director of University of Michigan Precision Health, was selected for a 2020 Sloan Research Fellowship by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for her work harnessing patient data to improve healthcare outcomes. Wiens’ primary research is in the development of data-driven predictive models needed to help organize, process, and transform data into actionable knowledge.
- Reetuparna Das received a 2020 Intel Outstanding Researcher Award for her work on computational caches, an emerging technology based on the use of a processor’s cache space to perform computations. Das and her collaborators have proposed techniques that can repurpose cache memory arrays into a million bit serial arithmetic logic units.
