Congratulations to Matt Mauriello who was just selected as an All-S.T.A.R Fellow for his work on scalable thermography--one of sixteen across the entire Graduate School at UMD. The Graduate All-S.T.A.R. Fellowship honors graduate students who are both outstanding scholars and outstanding graduate assistants. Read more about the award here.
I am deeply honored to be named a Sloan Research Fellow along with my CS colleague Tom Goldstein (that's me and Tom in the picture during the CS department's Sloan celebration). While the Sloan is awarded individually, I truly believe the recognition should be shared more broadly: particularly with my students, collaborators, and mentors who have helped inspire, enable, and enrich my work.
I am also thankful for the support and mentorship from the UMD CS Department and the Human-Computer Interaction Lab. I now feel doubly motivated to live up to the esteem of the award (which I will do just as soon as my paternity leave ends)!
We were just notified that MakerWear received the Best Paper award at CHI2017 (top 1% of all submissions at CHI). The conference received over 2400 submissions and 24 were chosen for Best paper (97 were chosen for Honorable Mention). Congrats to lead student Majeed Kazemitibaar and the whole MakerWear team!
This is the first full research publication from Froehlich's NSF CAREER award.
The Makeability Lab came together to collectively design and make a custom, laser-cut plaque for Kotaro in Japanese and English for a graduation gift. Congrats Dr. Hara! Special thanks to Majeed for vectorizing my designs, to Liang for designing and creating the custom 3D-printed plaque stand, and to Art Faculty Brandon Morse for letting us use his Epilog laser cutter.
