Huang, Khoshmanesh, and Pan win Robert Stuart Early Research Recognition Award

ISU Department of Computer Science congratulates Yijia Huang, Zahra Khoshmanesh and Rangeet Pan for winning the Robert Stewart Early Research Recognition Award during Spring 2020.

Robert Stewart Early Research Recognition Award was established by Dr. Long Nguyen to honor Professor Robert Stewart. The purpose of the award is to acknowledge a computer science Ph.D. student who is taking on a research subject with high risk. 

Yijia Huang was nominated by his major professor Dr. Hridesh Rajan, “This award specially recognizes Yijia Huang’s work on BoaC, a cyber infrastructure a language and an infrastructure for deeper analysis of the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19) provided by the Allen Institute for AI”.

Zahra Khoshmanesh was nominated by her major professor Dr. Robyn Lutz, “Zahra’s work could open the door to news to efficiently debug the design of new products in a software product line before they are implemented in code”.

Rangeet Pan was nominated by his major professor Dr. Hridesh Rajan, “Rangeet has taken a co-leading role on a very high-risk, high-reward project to create a Cyber Infrastructure (CI) encapsulating CORD-19 data and provide an easy-to-use web-based interface for scientists and engineers to analyze that data”.
