By Jessica Tabak

This April, Michael Black, computer science professor, was awarded a Fulbright fellowship sponsored by the State Department’s Center for the International Exchange of Scholars. He will be instructing courses and conducting collaborative research at Sankalchand Patel College of Engineering in Visnagar, India, for 5 months this fall.

Black's research interests include computer architecture and parallel computing. His research is published in international computer architecture and computer science education conferences and journals. He is currently supervising graduate and undergraduate student research projects.

The Fulbright Fellowship Program was established in 1946 by Senator William J. Fulbright. Sponsored by the United States Department of State, the program aims to increase mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States and other countries through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills. Since its establishment, more than 47,000 students and scholars from the United States and 152,000 from other countries have benefited from the Fulbright experience.
