Assistant Professor Onur Mutlu has received a 2013 IBM Faculty Award in the amount of $40,000. This is the second year in a row that he has received this prestigious award.
The IBM Faculty Award Program is a highly competitive program open to full-time faculty worldwide. Candidates must be nominated by an IBM employee who works in his or her research area and will then serve as liaison for their collaboration. According to the IBM website, winners of the IBM Faculty Award "must have an outstanding reputation for contributions in their field or, in the case of junior faculty, show unusual promise."
