Computer Science PhD student Marco Maggioni has been selected as one of the recipients of the 2014 Dean's Scholar Award winners.

The Dean's Scholar Award is a one-year, non-renewable award presented by the Dean of the Graduate College in recognition of a student's scholarly achievement. The award is intended to provide the most distinguished, advanced-level graduate students with a period of time dedicated solely to the completion of their programs. The Dean?s Scholar competition is open to doctoral students who have passed the Graduate-College-required Preliminary Examination at the University of Illinois at Chicago and are well into their dissertation work, and also to MFA students who have passed second-semester review. Recipients of the Dean's Scholar Award will receive a fellowship stipend of $25,000 for a twelve-month academic year. The recipients also receive a tuition and fee waiver from the Graduate College.

Marco's research is in parallel algorithms and computer architectures, with special focus on sparse linear algebra and convex optimization on GPUs, with applications to computational biology. Marco is a member of the Computational Population Biology Lab at UIC.
