SCI Researcher Malihe Alikhani Wins Grant to Support Underrepresented Students
Malihe Alikhani, assistant professor of computer science in the School of Computing and Information at the University of Pittsburgh, recently received a Google ExploreCSR grant to support students from underrepresented groups to pursue graduate studies and research careers in computing.
Since 2018, the exploreCSR awards have supported universities in designing and hosting research-focused workshops during the academic year that expose students from underrepresented groups to computing research methodologies, career pathways and exploratory problems.
Alikhani’s research interests are in natural language processing (language technology), cognitive science and human computation.
