ERG Student Valeri Vasquez Awarded Prestigious Fellowship

Vasquez, Valeri

We would like to congratulate ERG PhD student Valeri Vasquez on receiving a 2017 ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational and Data Science Fellowship.

From the SIGHPC website:

“ACM SIGHPC and Intel have partnered to create Computational and Data Science Fellowships, a 5-year program to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science. Specifically targeted at women or students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have not traditionally participated in the computing field, the program is open to students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world.”

Valeri and her fellow recipients will be honored during an awards ceremony at SC17, the “International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis,” in Denver this November.
