Michael Freedman, a Princeton assistant professor of computer science, has received a 2009 award from the Young Investigator Program of the Office of Naval Research, an award given to promising early-career researchers.
Freedman's research spans a range of areas of computer science, including distributed systems, security, networking and applied cryptography.
He was one of 15 award recipients selected from 193 researchers who submitted proposals for the highly competitive program. He will receive $610,000 in funding.
The award recognizes young scientists for their research achievements, potential for continued outstanding research efforts and strong support and commitment from their respective universities and research institutions. The awards were first given out by the Navy in 1985.
