Jana Doppa received a prestigious National Science Foundation Early Career Research Award for his work in developing algorithms to support scientists and engineers in their decision-making and experimental design process.
This $550,000 grant will support Doppa’s work to develop general-purpose learning and reasoning algorithms to support engineers and scientists, and to streamline experimental processes. He will collaborate with scientists to apply the algorithms, in particular, in the fields of computer hardware, materials, and synthetic microbiomes, helping the researchers decide on the optimal way to conduct their experiments.
The work builds on his success in developing algorithms for electronic design automation and computer architecture domains.
Alyssa Dalbeck has been with EECS for nearly three years. In that time, Alyssa has continually shown initiative and been given more and more responsibilities. Within the last year especially, she has taken on all the purchasing and travel responsibilities after the VCEA business center closed. She very quickly learned all of the processes and became the department expert. She has time and time again proven to be an extremely smart, efficient, and responsible worker who deserves recognition. She is also a pleasant and helpful resource to anyone who enters the main office regardless of their position (staff/faculty/student/parent).
