IC School students among winners and finalists of the QInF 2013
Qualcomm Research awarded Zahra Sadeghipoor and Alberto Crivellaro, IC School PhD students, with prestigious Qualcomm Innovation Fellowships. Additionally, Gökhan Yildrim and Niranjan Thanikachalam, were among the six finalists.
A large number of Qualcomm research engineers participate in carefully reviewing all the proposals and selecting the QInF Finalists, who are then invited to present their proposals to a panel of executive judges. Each winning student receives a Fellowship for the upcoming academic year. For 2013, three Fellowships will be awarded at selected departments. Furthermore, a Qualcomm researcher is assigned as mentor to each winning student, to facilitate close collaboration and interaction with Qualcomm Corporate Research & Development.
Zahra Sadeghipoor and Gökhan Yildrim are both PhD students in the Image and Visual Representation Group (IVRG). Niranjan Thanikachalam is a PhD student in the Audiovisual Communications Laboratory (LCAV). Alberto Crivellaro is a PhD student in the Computer Vision Laboratory (CVLAB).
