NYU GSTEM students visit during the summer of 2022
Medha Belwadi and Pranavi Gollanapalli will join our research group this summer through the NYU GSTEM program. NYU GSTEM is a summer program for high school juniors that allows them to participate in research laboratories. The NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences offers the program and helps promote STEM to traditionally underrepresented groups, particularly females and minorities. Medha and Pranavi will be working on our recently funded NSF project on imperative Deep Learning system programming and evolution as part of the project’s broader impacts.(more…)
Tatiana selected to 2022 CRA-WP Grad Cohort for Women
Congratulations to Tatiana for being selected to participate in the 2022 CRA-WP Grad Cohort for Women! The NSF-funded workshop, which “aims to increase the ranks of senior women in computing-related studies and research by building and mentoring nationwide communities of women through their graduate studies,” will take place later this year in New Orleans. More information can be found on the event page. Congrats, Tatiana!
