Two Jacobs School Computer Scientists Get Intel Ph.D. Fellowship

Two computer science graduate students at the Jacobs School of Engineering have received 2012-13 Intel Corporate Fellowship awards. The competitive awards are given to students chosen from a pool of exceptional applicants from top universities and exciting areas of research.
This year's Jacobs School winners were:
Nathan Goulding-Hotta, for his thesis: "GreenDroid: Exploiting Dark Silicon as a New Architectural Resource." His work was profiled in this story, back in 2010.
Kai Wang, for his thesis "Optical Character Recognition in the Wild." Wang also was an author on a paper that showed how a software program could perform key duplication by using a photograph of the key rather than the key itself. More on the paper, which got ample media coverage, here.

 Tamara Denning, a UC San Diego alumna now at the University of Washington, also was a recipient for her thesis "A Human-Centered Approach to Security Solutions for Emerging Technologies."
