CS’ Vladimir Braverman to receive NSF CAREER Award
Vladimir Braverman, an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science, has been chosen by the National Science Foundation for its prestigious CAREER Award, which recognizes early stage scholars with high levels of promise and excellence.
Using this $500,000, five-year grant, Braverman will develop new streaming and sketching algorithms that will be used in a variety of applications, from networking and machine learning to astronomy and statistical inference. The project will support undergraduate research, and engage students working to solve cutting-edge theoretical problems. In addition, Braverman and his team will organize an annual Sublinear Algorithms Workshop at Johns Hopkins University, as well as a workshop for first-generation students. The team also will work with students at Independence School Local 1, a public charter high school in Baltimore City, where minority students comprise 60 percent of the student body.
Braverman is a member of the Institute for Data Intensive Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins.
