Bailey Miller, a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department, has received a NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship.

Bailey Miller, a Ph.D. student in Carnegie Mellon University's Computer Science Department, has been selected for a NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship

The NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship provides funding of up to $60,000 per award to Ph.D. students researching topics that will lead to major advances in accelerated computing and its applications. The company encourages submissions from students pushing the envelope in artificial intelligence, robotics, autonomous vehicles and related fields.  

Fellows not only receive crucial funding for their research but can also conduct groundbreaking work with access to NVIDIA products, technology and some of the most talented minds in the field. The fellows also participate in a summer internship. 

"Our fellowship recipients are among the most talented graduate students in the world," said NVIDIA Chief Scientist Bill Dally. "They're working on some of the most important problems in computer science, and we're delighted to support their research." 

Inspired by the ability of Monte Carlo rendering algorithms to visualize expansive virtual worlds in animated films, Miller is developing an analogous set of Monte Carlo techniques to simulate physical phenomena like heat transfer or electromagnetism on highly complex, real-world models. The potential applications of these techniques are extensive, ranging from optimizing thermal management systems in data centers to improving the resolution of electrical impedance tomography for noninvasive cancer screening.
