Microsoft names next class of Faculty Fellows

Microsoft gives out sizeable grants to young university professors and researchers in computer science, encouraging them to stay in academia, but also bringing them into the fold of Microsoft Research. The company released the names of its 2007 class of New Faculty Fellows this morning.

They are:

Magdalena Balazinska, University of Washington

Josh Bongard, University of Vermont

Yixin Chen, Washington University in St. Louis

Adam Siepel, Cornell University

Luis von Ahn, Carnegie Mellon University.

The group was selected from among more than 100 applicants. They will each receive a $200,000 cash gift over two years to apply to their research. The fellows also get access to Microsoft software, events and Microsoft Research.
