Microsoft Research selects seven fellows for its Faculty Fellowship Program every year. It looks for those who are on the cutting edge of computer research through a unique path as well as individuals who look like they are going to be leaders in their field. This year, one such individual selected was Sinan Aral who is NY Stern Business School’s Assistant Professor of Information, Operations and Management Sciences.
