EE Alumnus Mung Chiang wins NSF's Waterman Award
Mung Chiang, who earned his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering at the Stanford School of Engineering, has been awarded this year's Alan T. Waterman Award, the National Science Foundation has announced.
This annual award honors outstanding researchers under the age of 35 in any field of science or engineering that NSF supports. It is the country’s highest award for scientists in that age group. Chiang's achievements will be recognized with a $1-million award, spread over five years, to help further his research.
