The University of Toronto Connaught New Researcher Awards was developed to foster excellence among assistant professors within the first five years of their appointment, helping them to establish a strong research program.
The Connaught was awarded to 66 researchers this year, including some of our own in the "Physical Sciences & Engineering" category:
- Azadeh Farzan - awarded to support her work on the "Scalable analysis of concurrent software"
- Bianca Schroeder - awarded to support her work on "Designing and building more reliable systems"
- Ruslan Salakahutdinov (cross-appointed to DCS) - awarded to support his work on "Learning hierarchical models: Theory and applications"
Congratulations to all!
