Each year since 2005, Microsoft Research has awarded Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowships to promising, early-career academics who are engaged in innovative computing research and have the potential to make significant advances in the state of the art. These fellowships—which include a cash award and access to software, invitations to conferences, and engagements with Microsoft Research—allow bright young academics to devote their time to pushing the boundaries of computer science research, freed from the distraction of grinding out grant proposals.
So it is with immense pleasure that we announce the 2014 Faculty Fellows: seven young professors from around the world who are exploring groundbreaking, high-impact research—the kind of research that has the potential to solve seemingly intractable societal problems. They now join the more than 50 talented academics who have received our past Faculty Fellowships.
Here, then, are this year’s Microsoft Research Faculty Fellows and a brief description of their current research:
For the tenth year of the program, we selected seven 2014 Faculty Fellows from the following five regions:
Microsoft Research is committed to creating opportunities for researchers around the world to make an impact, and we are delighted to provide these fellowships to recognize the work, and nurture the careers, of tomorrow’s academic research leaders.
