Singh Awarded Endowed Chair

Assistant Professor Aarti Singh has been awarded an endowed chair reserved for faculty members who show exceptional promise in the early stages of their careers. Singh, an assistant professor in the Machine Learning Department who joined the CMU faculty in 2009, will hold the A. Nico Habermann Chair of Computer Science. Singh’s research focuses on how to extract meaningful information from datasets that are both massive in size and plagued by noise, missing values and inconsistencies, while balancing the competing goals of computational efficiency and optimal accuracy. She is a recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER Award and is lead investigator for an NSF Big Data grant.
