CS Ph.D. candidate Rediet Abebe has been admitted to the 2019 class of Junior Fellows at the Harvard Society of Fellows. The Society is a group of scholars recognized for exceptional ability, originality, and resourcefulness. The fellowship is regarded as one of the most prestigious honors early-stage scholars can receive. Abebe will be the fifth computer scientist to win this honor since the inception of the fellowship in 1933. During her three-year appointment, she will work on Mechanism Design for Social Good—a research initiative she co-founded and co-organizes.
