Second year PhD student Kevin Miller has been selected for the 2019 National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship. With the purpose of increasing the number of U.S. citizens and nationals trained in science and engineering disciplines of military importance, awardees receive full tuition and all mandatory fees coverage for up to three years. The fellowship program is sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the Army of Research Office (ARO), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR). Kevin’s research interests lie in the intersection of network science and machine learning, specifically graph-based models for machine learning tasks.
Incoming PhD student Aaron George is the recipient of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP), which selects outstanding students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines among various U.S. institutions. Fellows receive a three-year annual stipend, allowance for tuition and fees, and opportunities for international research and professional development. Aaron’s research specialty is also in Computational and Applied Mathematics.
