A weekly update from the SCS Dean’s Office


All of us share A Tartan’s Responsibility. As members of the CMU community we must do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

April 7, 2021

— Congratulations to ISR Assistant Professor Fei Fang who received an award from the National Science Foundation to support her project, “CAREER: Integrating Machine Learning with Game Theory for Multiagent Communication and Coordination.” Fei’s research aims to design new game-theoretic models for multiagent communication and coordination with findings planned for application to wildlife protection and food bank operations.

Pranav Kumar (CSD) and William Zhang (ECE) were doing compiler research with CSD Associate Professor Seth Goldstein when they graduated last December. They continued to work together on a paper, Fast Structural Register Allocation, which they submitted to the Student Research Competition at the ACM’s International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO) held earlier this year. Congratulations to Pranav and William for winning First Place Undergraduate Paper at CGO 2021!

— Two SCS juniors received the prestigious Barry Goldwater Scholarship for 2021. Arvind Mahankali and Jinhyung Park are among four CMU students, 51 mathematics and CS majors nationally and 410 students in the U.S. granted the scholarship, which is awarded to sophomores and juniors who show promise as leaders in the natural sciences, engineering and mathematics. Congratulations, Arvind and Jinhyung!

— Thursday, April 15, 2 p.m. – The SCS New Faculty Intro Series wraps up. Meet two new SCS faculty members, assistant professors from the HCII Alexandra Ion and David Lindlbauer, and learn more about their research. Be sure to register and plan to attend.

— Friday, April 16, 1 p.m. – Stand Up Against Street Harassment Training. This one-hour training provides a clear, adaptable and expert-approved set of tools that will help you be more prepared and safely intervene when you experience or witness harassment in public spaces. This training is for all members of the campus community, friends and family members.

— Accelerated vaccinating leads to questions about returning to campus. Up-to-date information for students, researchers, staff and faculty will always be available on the SCS Return to Campus page. On that site you’ll find links to relevant CMU information and email links to members of the SCS Back to Campus team. You can send questions to a team member, your department head, or Philip Lehman anytime.

Until next week,
