Guy Lebanon, assistant professor in the Department of Statistics, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Department of Computer Sciences (courtesy), was granted the prestigious Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award by the National Science Foundation. The CAREER program recognizes and supports the early career-development activities of teacher-scholars who most effectively integrate research and education within the context of the mission of their organization. The five-year grant was awarded for his proposal titled Multiresolution Representations of Documents which aims at studying new sequential representations for documents and their applications in statistical document modeling and visualization.

Lebanon received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University in May 2005. His main research interests are statistical modeling and visualization of high dimensional discrete data such as text documents and ranked data. Additional research interests include privacy preservation in databases and social networks, and the use of non-Euclidean geometry in statistical inference.

Congratulations, Professor Guy Lebanon!
