Claude-Faust wins 2011 Google PhD Fellowship

Friday, June 24, 2011

PhD student, Francisco Claude-Faust, has won a Google U.S./Canada PhD Fellowship in Search and Information Retrieval. He was the only Canadian recipient of 34 fellowships given worldwide to young researchers. In addition to his research at the Cheriton School under the direction of Professor Ian Munro, Francisco will be paired with a full-time "Googler" based on shared research interests. The Google research mentor will provide a different perspective on the student's work, and hopefully "build a professional network which will last their entire career," states a recent Google Research blog.
