James Kanoff, who co-founded the Farmlink Project at the start of the pandemic, will share a 2021 Congressional Medal of Honor Service Award for his work connecting farmers with fresh food to food banks.
Ullman shares the prize with long-time collaborator Alfred Aho of Columbia University. They are recognized for their influential work on compilers and algorithms, including their co-authorship of widely popular textbooks on these topics.
Stanford School of Engineering faculty members Anne Kiremidjian and Kunle Olukotun and School of Medicine faculty member Joshua Makower have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, which is one of the highest professional distinctions accorded engineers.
Hennessy and long-time collaborator David Patterson win the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award for inventing a simpler, standardized way to design fast and efficient CPUs, and for sharing the technique in a textbook that’s still used to train chip engineers around the world.
The awards honor the life and work of the late Amy J. Blue, associate vice president for administrative services and facilities, who was known as a woman of incisive intelligence, abundant energy and unrelenting honesty.
