Lehigh ISE Postdoctoral Researcher Michael O’Neill has been appointed 2020 Computing Innovation Fellow.

The CIFellows program was launched by the Computing Research Association (CRA) and its Computing Community Consortium (CCC) with strong backing from NSF. The goal of the program is to provide fellows with excellent career training through best practices in research, and offer career enhancing opportunities in a supportive environment for the future advancement of the computing research community

Michael is currently a Postdoctoral at Lehigh University under the mentorship of Dr. Frank E. Curtis. Michael earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. His research Practical Algorithms for Smooth Nonconvex Optimization with Complexity Guarantees aims to bridge the gap between theoretical guarantees and practical performances for algorithms with worst case complexity results in smooth nonconvex optimization.

The ISE Department congratulates Michael on this prestigious appointment.
