ComputING Science PhD student receives Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship
Kathryn Nurse, about to start a PhD in computing science at SFU, has received a $150,000 Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship. Studying under professor Pavol Hell, Nurse's proposed research, 'Maximum Linear Arrangement of Directed Graphs' aims to devise new algorithms to solve the computationally hard problem of Maximum Directed Linear Arrangement efficiently for specific cases. Wiring problems and statistical physics are two potential applications.
