Ryan Lichtenwalter Receives CRC Award for Computational Sciences and Visualization

Cheryl Kelly • DATE: May 22, 2012

Ryan N. Lichtenwalter, advised by Professor Nitesh Chawla, is one of three winners of the 2012 CRC Award for Computational Sciences and Visualization. This award recognizes outstanding contributions in the areas of computational sciences and visualization. Contributions may include applications of high performance computation, novel data visualization techniques, or the development of algorithms and tools for better using high performance computing or visualization systems. Ryan won the award for his LPmade software, which was accepted into the prestigious Journal of Machine Learning Research and is available on MLOSS.org, which streamlines, parallelizes, increases the reproducibility of, and contributes new methods to link prediction and network science.

This is the second student from Professor Chawla's group to win the CRC Award since 2010. Karsten Steinhaeuser won the award in 2010.
