Min Wu selected as ONR Young InvestigatorCongratulations to ISR-affiliated Assistant Professor Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS), who has been selected as an Office of Naval Research (ONR) Young Investigator. The award will support her research in "Digital Fingerprinting for Multimedia Security and Forensics." It is a three-year, $300,000 award.
The program is designed to attract young scientists and engineers who show exceptional promise for doing creative research and teaching. The Office of Naval Research believes the Young Investigators are the best and brightest young academic researchers in the country.
Min is one of only 28 investigators ONR selected for its awards nationwide, and one of only two from its Mathematical Computer and Information Sciences Division. The competition for this award is fierce; ONR estimates that only 10 percent of the proposals submitted result in an award.
