Three Computer Scientists receive NSF CAREER Award
Congratulations to three Computer Scientists faculty who are recipients of the National Science Foundation’s Early CAREER Award.
Ilya Shpitser five-year CAREER award will support his project, “Robust Causal and Statistical Inference in High Dimensional Structured Systems with Hidden Variables,” which aims to significantly advance understanding of all major tasks in causal systems with hidden variables: identification, estimation, and computationally efficient probabilistic calculations.
Raman Arora, assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science. His five-year CAREER award will support his project, “Understanding Inductive Biases in Modern Machine Learning,” which will focus on developing an explanatory and prescriptive theory of deep learning that is tightly integrated with and motivated by the practice.
Abhishek Jain, assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science. His CAREER Award will support his project, “New Frontiers in Computing on Private Data,” which will explore new methods to enable secure multi-party computation. The project also includes outreach activities to raise the Baltimore community’s awareness of security and cryptography.
