For the second year in a row, a University of Toronto, Computer Science doctoral student has won the prestigious Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada
(NSERC) Doctoral Prize. Mark Braverman received the NSERC award for his work on developing a theoretical basis to determine whether roadblocks to electronic solutions can
be removed by designing a better algorithm, or if the problem is just
too complex or maybe even the wrong type to be solved by a computer. For further information, please see NSERC's website.
