Paul Wollan awarded ERC Starting Grant

Our alumnus Paul Wollan (ACO'05) was notified that he had been awarded a prestigious European Research Council Starting Independent Researcher Grant. This is a European version of a CAREER award, except much better---a typical award provides 1.5M euro ($2.2M) over five years. Paul is an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science department at the Sapienza University of Rome. He visited us in the Spring semester, and will visit again next year.
