Veloso Among Five To Earn Highest Faculty Distinction at Carnegie Mellon
Herbert A. Simon Professor of Computer Science Manuela M. Veloso is among five faculty members to be named University Professor - the highest academic accolade a faculty member can achieve at Carnegie Mellon.
The winners of the 2012 Turing Award, MIT's Shafi Goldwasser and Silvio Micali, have significant ties to Carnegie Mellon. Both earned doctorates in computer science at the University of California, Berkeley, where each was advised by Manuel Blum, now a CMU professor of computer science and himself a Turing laureate. Micali has been frequent lecturer here and maintains close ties to the ALADDIN/Theory Group. Goldwasser earned her bachelor degree in mathematics at CMU in 1979.
