The Graduate College Completion Fellowship was instrumental in allowing me to pursue my research without the typical constraints of an RA or TA position. I spent significant time on my research, which resulted in two publications at top-tier conferences. Additionally, I was able to bring together my thesis during the terms covered by the fellowship; I am one step closer to finishing my degree. Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my advisor, Dr. Arunabha Sen, for his continued support and all other judges who deemed my research worthy of such a prestigious award.
