F or the fourth year in a row, the engineering school has garnered a National Science Foundation (NSF) Young Investigator Award. Gabriel Robins, assistant professor of computer science, earned the noted award.

The NSF prize aids the research and teaching careers of promising young faculty and promotes ties between academia and industry.

Robins received a base of $25,000 for five years. He may receive a total of $100,000 per year for five years, provided he can raise matching funds or equipment from industry of other sources.

Robins was one of about 200 U.S. faculty members honored from a field of more than 1,600 nominees. U.Va. faculty member John R. Scully of materials science earned the award in 1993. Robert Davis of chemical engineering and Elias Towe of electrical engineering received the award in 1992, and Randy Pausch of computer science collected the award in 1991.

Robins joined the computer science faculty in 1992 after receiving his computer-aided design, computational geometry and parallel architectures.
