Graduate Student Abhinav Pathak Receives Corporate Intel PhD Fellowship
Abhinav Pathak, a PhD student in Prof. Y. Charlie Hu's group, has been selected to receive the Corporate Intel PhD Fellowship for the 2011-2012 academic year, a prestigious honor awarded to "PhD candidates pursuing leading-edge work in fields related to Intel's business and research interests."
This is a highly competitive program with a limited number of fellowships awarded annually. Selected U.S. universities are invited to submit a limited number of students for consideration. Those students selected by their universities are then carefully reviewed by the Intel fellows and their designees who choose the winning students. The fellowship includes a cash award (tuition and stipend), an Intel Technical Liaison and travel funds to meet the liaison either at a conference or here at Intel. These students are also prioritized for internships and hiring within the company.
Pathak's thesis work focuses on fine-grained online power modeling of smartphones and developing automatic application energy profiling and debugging tools to enable the development of the next million mobile phone apps to be energy-efficient.
