COMP's First PhD student won the 2016 Microsoft Research Asia Fellowship Award

We are pleased to announce our PhD student, Mr Ziqiang Cao, has won the 2016 Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA) Fellowship Award and he is the very first COMP student receiving this prestigious award.

More than 110 distinguished PhD candidates from 40 leading research universities/institutions from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and Singapore were nominated for MSRA Fellowship this year. Their credentials, publications and research projects were evaluated, and Mr Ziqiang Cao was among the only 10 extremely outstanding students winning this award.

Microsoft Research Asia will offer Mr Cao a 3-month visiting research opportunity at a top international research institute under the guidance of an experienced researcher as well as a cash award to support his research and academic endeavours.

Mr Cao is also invited to attend the 2016 MSRA Fellowship Award Ceremony held in Seoul, Korea in early November to meet with the Turing Award winner, distinguished scientists from around the world and other award winners.

Congratulations to Mr Cao for the great achievement!
