Congratulations to the Students Awardees of the 2019-2020 RDI2 Fellowship for Excellence in Computation and Data Science
The Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute is pleased to announce the 2019-2020 student awardees of RDI2 Fellowship for Excellence in Computation and Data Science:
- James Kelley – Computational and Integrative Biology, Advisor: Andrey, Grigoriev, PhD,Research: Accelerated analysis of variants in multiple cancer genomes
- Joseph Lubin – Chemistry & Chemical Biology/IQB, Advisor: Sagar Khare, PhD, Research: Computational data-driven methodology for rapid, rational design of proteolytic enzymes that are specific to target substrates, for example disease-associated proteins
- Aidan Zabolo –Physics & Astronomy, Advisor: Jedediah Pixley, PhD, Research: Simulating Quantum Circuits using Extreme Scale Computing
Each fellowship appointment will be for one year and comes with $30,000 towards GA support, with potential for renewal. RDI2 also recognizes the following existing RDI2 Fellow with the renewal support for $5000 for 2019-2020:
- Humna Awan - Physics&Astronomy, Advisor: Eric Gawiser, Research: Big Data in Astrophysics: Clustering Analysis of Partial Galaxies
Through this award, the Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute supports students working on multi-disciplinary collaborative computational and data-enabled research projects in science and engineering, with a specific research focus on Big Data and Extreme Scale computing.
The 2019-2020 Fellows will be formally recognized during the Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute Open House event on October 25, 2019.
