Announcing the 2015 North American Google PhD Fellows



In 2009, Google created the PhD Fellowship program to recognize and support outstanding graduate students doing exceptional work in Computer Science (CS) and related disciplines. In that time we’ve seen past recipients add depth and breadth to CS by developing new ideas and research directions, from building new intelligence models to changing the way in which we interact with computers to advancing into faculty positions, where they go on to train the next generation of researchers.

Reflecting our continuing commitment to building strong relations with the global academic community, we are excited to announce the latest North American Google PhD Fellows. The following 15 fellowship recipients were chosen from a highly competitive group, and represent the outstanding quality of nominees provided by our university partners:

  • Justin Meza, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Systems Reliability (Carnegie Mellon University)
  • Waleed Ammar, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Natural Language Processing (Carnegie Mellon University)
  • Aaron Parks, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Mobile Networking (University of Washington)
  • Kyle Rector, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Human Computer Interaction (University of Washington)
  • Nick Arnosti, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Market Algorithms (Stanford University)
  • Osbert Bastani, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Programming Languages (Stanford University)
  • Carl Vondrick, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Machine Perception, (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
  • Wojciech Zaremba, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Machine Learning (New York University)
  • Xiaolan Wang, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Structured Data (University of Massachusetts Amherst)
  • Muhammad Naveed, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Security (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
  • Masoud Moshref Javadi, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Computer Networking (University of Southern California)
  • Riley Spahn, Google US/CanadaFellowship in Privacy (Columbia University)
  • Saurabh Gupta, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Computer Vision (University of California, Berkeley)
  • Yun Teng, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Computer Graphics (University of California, Santa Barbara)
  • Tan Zhang, Google US/Canada Fellowship in Mobile Systems (University of Wisconsin-Madison)

This group of students represent the next generation of researchers who endeavor to solve some of the most interesting challenges in Computer Science. We offer our congratulations, and look forward to their future contributions to the research community with high expectations.
