Visiting Professor Lorenzo Alvisi wins Humboldt Award
Lorenzo Alvisi, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin, has been selected for a prestigious Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. This award provides support for him to spend up to a year at the institute, where he will work with Peter Druschel and other MPI-SWS researchers on fault-tolerant computing for multi-core servers.
This is the second year that an MPI-SWS visiting professor has won a Humboldt Award. Johannes Gehrke was a 2010 Humboldt Research Award recipient.
The Humboldt Research Award is granted „in recognition of a researcher’s entire achievements to date to academics whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future.“
