Fang Gong Awarded 2012 IBM Ph.D. Fellowship
Ph.D. student Fang Gong from our Electrical Engineering department has been awarded a prestigious IBM Ph.D. Fellowship, a highly competitive award that honors exceptional Ph.D. students who have an interest in solving problems that are important to IBM and fundamental to innovation in science and engineering. Recipients are selected based on their overall potential for research excellence, the degree to which their technical interests align with those of IBM and their academic progress to date, in the form of publications and faculty recommendations.
Fang earned the fellowship for his work with Professor Lei He in Electronic Design Automation (EDA) field. His research interests focus on theoretical foundation of probabilistic modeling and statistical analysis, design methodology for robust information system, and high-performance energy-efficient computing. Fang also developed great interests on wireless healthcare, human computer interface (HCI) and image processing. Fang’s achievement as a recipient of 2012 IBM Ph.D. fellowship is a great honor for our EE department and UCLA community.
