Assistant Professor Jonathan Kao of the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department has been selected to be a recipient of the UCLA Hellman Fellows Award. The UCLA Hellman Fellows Program was established through the kind generosity of the Hellman Fellows Fund to help promising assistant professors with their research and creative endeavors, in hopes of promoting career advancement and enhancing their progress toward tenure. In our ninth year, we received many applications from faculty in various disciplines across the campus. Based on the quality of the proposed research, potential for great distinction, and financial need, 17 fellows have been selected from this year’s talented pool.
