Daphna Buchsbaum Awarded the Wriston Fellowship from Brown University

The Computational Cognitive Development Lab is pleased to announce that our very own PI, Daphna Buchsbaum, has been awarded the Wriston Fellowship from Brown University!

This fellowship is quoted as being “The most prestigious award that Brown offers to junior faculty, the Wriston Fellowship, recognizes the accomplishments of an assistant professor or lecturer who has demonstrated exceptional ability and dedication as a teacher. Consistent with Brown’s emphasis on the essential interdependence of teaching and research, the Wriston Fellow should combine excellence in the classroom with outstanding scholarship.”

Furthermore, this award recognizes that “creative faculty members are a university’s greatest asset, … that their efforts to improve the quality of education must be recognized and rewarded, … [and] that effective teaching is possible only when teacher-scholars are given sufficient time to create and to evaluate new teaching methods and courses of instruction. The Fellowship consequently provides a semester of paid leave which is typically taken in advance of the decision about tenure and promotion.”

We are so proud of Dr. Buchsbaum for being recognized with this very well-deserved award, and cannot wait to see what more she will do with her time at Brown!

Congratulations Daphna!
