Carl Doersch Receives 2014 Google PhD Fellowship

Carl Doersch, a Ph.D. student in the Machine Learning Department, is the recipient of a 2014 Google Ph.D. Fellowship. The Google Ph.D. Fellowship program supports Ph.D. students in computer science or closely related fields and reflects Google’s commitment to building strong relations with the global academic community. Now in its sixth year, the program covers North America, Europe, China, India and Australia. The two-year fellowship includes tuition and fees and a yearly stipend. Doersch will use the Google Fellowship to support his research in applying data mining techniques to images, which will help us better understand and organize the petabytes of visual data on the Web.
