The Hariri Institute for Computing at Boston University is pleased to announce its fourth cohort of Junior Faculty Fellows. They are:

Samuel Bazzi, Assistant Professor, Department of Economics

Ksenia Bravaya, Assistant Professor, Department of Chemistry

Division of Materials Science & Engineering

Gustavo Schwenkler, Assistant Professor, Department of Finance

The Hariri Institute Junior Faculty Fellows program was established in 2011 both to recognize outstanding junior faculty at Boston University working in diverse areas of the computational sciences, as well as to provide focal points for supporting broader collaborative research in these areas at BU and beyond. Junior Fellows are selected by the Hariri Institute Executive Steering Committee based on nominations received each spring, and are appointed for a two-year term.

Commenting on this fourth cohort of Hariri Junior Fellows, Professor Azer Bestavros, Director of the Institute, noted that “a remarkable attribute of the research of this year’s cohort of junior fellows is the degree to which computational and data-centric approaches are fundamentally changing their respective fields,” adding that “this is an indication of the paradigm shift in science and engineering and a testament to the increasingly important role of the Hariri Institute in connecting like-minded researchers at BU.”

Over the next several months, each of the Junior Faculty Fellows will be giving a Hariri Institute Distinguished Lecture.
