UC San Diego Design Lab PhD Student Ailie Fraser has been selected as a 2017 Adobe Research Fellow. The fellowship recognizes outstanding graduate students anywhere in the world carrying out exceptional research in computer science. This year, Adobe is awarding fellowships to graduate students working in the areas of computer graphics, computer vision, human-computer interaction, machine learning, visualization, audio, natural language processing and programming languages.
Ailie is a third-year Computer Science PhD student at UC San Diego. She works in the Design Lab on research in human-computer interaction and is advised by Scott Klemmer, a Design Lab Co-Director, who specializes in computer science, engineering and cognitive science. Ailie completed her Honours Bachelor of Science at the University of Toronto.
The Adobe Research Fellowship consists of a $10,000 award, a Creative Cloud subscription membership for one year, an Adobe Research mentor and an internship at Adobe for the summer. Adobe Research provides cutting-edge research that has helped build the reputation of Adobe Systems Incorporated, an American multinational computer software company. While Adobe has historically focused upon the creation of multimedia and creativity software products such as Photoshop, Acrobat Reader and the Portable Document Format (PDF), Adobe Research is helping to grow the company’s expertise in analytics, machine learning, data mining and other innovative technologies relevant to Adobe software products for consumers, creative professionals, developers, and enterprises.
