GRASP undergraduate research student, Jessica Wetstone, received an Honorable Mention in the Computing Research Association’s Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Award competition for 2011!
This award program recognizes undergraduate students in North American universities who show outstanding research potential in an area of computing research. This year’s nominees were a very impressive group. A number of them were commended for making significant contributions to more than one research project, several were authors or coauthors on multiple papers, others had made presentations at major conferences, and some had produced software artifacts that were in widespread use. Many of our nominees had been involved in successful summer research or internship programs, many had been teaching assistants, tutors, or mentors, and a number had significant involvement in community volunteer efforts. It is quite an honor to be selected for Honorable Mention from this group.
CRA gratefully acknowledges the support of Microsoft Research and Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL) who sponsor the Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Award program in alternate years. Microsoft is the sponsor of this year’s awards.
