IITKGP Alum Dr. Anshumali Shrivastava and Rice Computer Science Professor Receives Outstanding Achievement Award

Anshumali Shrivastava (2008/M.Sc./Mathematics and Computing) was recognized by Rice University with the Charles W. Duncan Jr. Achievement Award for Outstanding Faculty! The award honors tenure-track or tenured faculty demonstrating outstanding performance in both teaching and  scholarship. Anshumali has also founded Houston-based ThirdAI which has already received $6 million in funding.
