Brown University's Department of Computer Science has just announced that Qiuhong (Anna) Wei, a Brown CS student in the concurrent Master's program concentrating in Computer Science and Mathematics, a researcher in the Brown Visual Computing and Theoretical Computer Science at Brown groups, and one of the Meta Undergraduate Research Assistants (MURAs) who coordinate undergraduate research, has just won the Norman K. Meyrowitz '81 Award. Named for an alum known for his contributions to the department, the award recognizes exceptionally meritorious service to Brown CS and is accompanied by a cash prize of five hundred dollars.

"Norm set the standard for department service by an undergraduate," says Brown CS faculty member Tom Doeppner, Vice Chair and Director of Undergraduate Studies, "and we're delighted that Anna has followed in his footsteps. This award is not given every year, but only when we feel a graduating senior has earned it. She's earned it."

Norm feels similarly. "I am more than impressed by all of Anna's work in the department, culminating in the job of MURA – a job that is an order of magnitude more difficult than anything I had to do back in my day. It is a privilege to have my name associated with hers," he says.
