Athanassios G. Siapas, Professor of Computation and Neural Systems, has been named by the Department of Defense (DoD) as a 2017 Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellow. “The fellowship program provides research awards to top-tier researchers from U.S. universities to conduct revolutionary “high risk, high pay-off” research of strategic importance to the Department of Defense,” said Mary J. Miller, acting assistant secretary of defense for research and engineering. Professor Siapas has been named a fellow in the area of cognitive neuroscience. His research focuses on the study of information processing across networks of neurons, with emphasis on the neuronal mechanisms that underlie learning and memory formation. [DoD release]
Computation & Neural Systems student Charles Wang, mentored by Professor Athanassios G. Siapas, is a recipient of the 2016 Henry Ford II Scholar Award. He enjoys Caltech’s academic rigor as well as the undergraduate research programs. He is matriculating as a Caltech-UCSD Medical Scholar, expecting to attend UCSD Medical School after completing his four years at Caltech. The Henry Ford II Scholar Award is funded under an endowment provided by the Ford Motor Company Fund. The award is made annually to engineering students with the best academic record at the end of the third year of undergraduate study. 06.01.16
