Launching the Mark O. Robbins Prize in High-Performance Computing

The Mark O. Robbins Prize will be awarded annually to two PhD students who exemplify Dr. Robbins legacy by recognizing their outstanding achievement in high-performance computing. A third annual award, the Robbins Future Faculty Award, is targeted for postdoctoral students.

The Robbins Prize was created in 2020 to recognize exceptionally talented PhD students who reflect Dr. Robbins' contributions to computational science and engineering. It is made possible by generous donations from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute, the Institute for Data Intensive Engineering and Science, the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

The nomination application must be submitted as a single PDF file via email to Tara Engel,, by March 31.
