Recipients of the award are among the top 2 percent of GAs on campus in a given year.

Shahriar Aghaeimeibodi is advised by Prof. Edo Waks (ECE/IREAP/JQI). His area of research is at the intersection of engineering and quantum physics, with emphasis on strongly interacting light and matter and Quantum photonic structures. He is a member of the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP) and the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI).

Usman Fiaz is advised by Prof. John Baras (ECE/ISR). His research interests are in Robotics and Control Systems, with emphasis on autonomous multi-agent systems. He is affiliated with the Autonomy, Robotics, and Cognition (ARC) Lab and the Institute for Systems Research (ISR).

Aneesh Raghavan is advised by Prof. John Baras (ECE/ISR). His research interests are in control and networked cyber-physical systems. He focuses on understanding the value of information, the application of non-commutative probability models and the effects of order in measurements in decision problems involving multiple agents. He is affiliated with ISR.
