EPS alum named CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholar

One of our recent PhD graduates, Jihua Hao (JHU, 2017), who worked with Dimitri Sverjensky, has been selected as one of 19 new Global Scholars in the CIFAR Azrieli program which covers the sciences and humanities.

Jihua has just started a faculty position at the University of Science and Technology (USTC) in Hefei, China earlier this year.

The CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars program supports outstanding early-career researchers through mentorship, a global network, professional skills development, and $100,000 in unrestricted research support for two years. CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars join CIFAR research programs for two years collaborating with fellows and contributing new approaches toward the most important questions facing science and humanity. Following the program, many scholars stay connected to the CIFAR community as fellows, Canada CIFAR AI Chairs, or workshop participants.
