NSF Graduate Research Fellowship awarded to CS Student

In addition to Morgan Quigley and Moriah McClanahan, who were recently featured on the website, another CS student has received a prestigious national award.

Kristine Perry is a second year graduate student, working on both her MS and PhD. She was recently awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. The fellowship will cover the cost of her tuition with a monthly stipend, both for the next three years. Kristine is doing fundamental research in the area of machine learning and neural networks. In particular, she is investigating the extent to which different real world applications can be learned using current techniques, in order to help propose improved techniques and to better understand how to do a better job of learning difficult tasks.
