Grad student Shuang Zhao (advisor Kavita Bala) won an Intel Graduate Fellowship. This is a highly competitive program in which students must be selected by the university to apply and then are reviewed and handpicked by the Intel Fellows and their designees. The award covers tuition, stipend, connection with an Intel technical leader working in the student's area of study and a travel grant to meet their Intel technical leader.

Twenty-six awards were given nationwide this year. Another Cornell awardee was Mark Cianchetti (ECE). For more information, visit the Intel blog:
