Computer science professors Tajana Simunic Rosing, Steven Swanson and Amin Vahdat are in the news today. Why? They won a Google research grant, which will provide funding for their ongoing research on energy efficiency in computing. The grant is for $100,000 according to an Xconomy story by Gregory Huang who is Editor at Xconomy Seattle.
