Kudos to Professor Jaideep Vaidya, CIMIC and MS/IS who is awarded an NSF CAREER Grant on his research   "Collaborative Optimization with Limited Information Disclosure".  The award is in the amount of $450,000 over 5 years (2008-2012).

 

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of the early career-development activities of those teacher-scholars who most effectively integrate research and education within the context of the mission of their organization. Such activities should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of integrated contributions to research and
education."
