Assistant Professor Aaron Wagner has received a National Science Foundation Early Career Award for his proposal “A New Look at the Fundamental Limits of Lossy Network Compression.” The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is NSF's most prestigious award in support of the early career-development activities of teacher-scholars.
