CPAL recipient, Teresa Huang

Teresa Huang, a PhD student in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, is a recipient of the Conference on Parsimony and Learning (CPAL)’s Rising Star award, which recognizes promising final-year doctoral students, first-year tenure-track faculty, and industry researchers within two years of graduation.

In its inaugural year, the CPAL Rising Stars Award program offers young researchers the opportunity to attend its annual conference, set this year for early January at the University of Hong Kong. Winners will participate in a dedicated poster session and participate in panel discussions with senior researchers. Organizers say that the program is committed to enhancing representation and diversity in the field by providing a supportive platform and a nurturing mentoring network to guide budding academics.

At the conference, Huang will present her research on graph neural networks, stemming from her recently accepted NeurIPS paper.
