Olivia Weng Named NSF Graduate Research Fellow

Congratulations to Olivia Weng for being awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. The NSF GRF is one of the most prestigious graduate fellowships in the US. The fellowship will fund Liv for the remainder of her PhD allowing her to continue her research on the co-design of efficient, fault-tolerant computer architectures for applications in high-energy physics. One example is the Large Hadron Collider, where physicists need hardware that will process millions of particle collisions per second. Her research will allow their hardware, and the machine learning software that runs on it, to meet these intense computing demands while handing faults that are inherent in such sensors.
