As one of the highest honors for young faculty, the NSF CAREER award recognizes outstanding research. Meet the Columbia Engineering professors who earned the award.
The inaugural fair gave students the opportunity to take their research from paper to presentation and showcase their hard work.
The projects of the Undergraduate Computer and Data Science Research Fair fell under the themes of Data Science and Society, Interdisciplinary Data Science Applications, Data Science and Computer Science Research. Posters and demonstrations were proudly hosted by twenty-five students from SEAS, Barnard College, Columbia College, and the School of General Studies.
The fair was organized by the Data, Media and Society Center at the Data Science Institute, Columbia University; the Barnard Program in Computer Science and the Vagelos Computational Science Center; and the Department of Computer Science at Columbia Engineering led by Eugene Wu, Susan McGregor, Rebecca Wright, and Alexis Avedisian.
The award recognizes Moti Yung’s significant contributions to the field of cryptography, specifically, coinventing malicious cryptography and pioneering contributions to distributed cryptosystems.
