Gregory Hager, the Mandell Bellmore Professor in the Department of Computer Science and director of the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare, both in the Whiting School of Engineering, has been named a 2017 Technische Universität München Ambassador. Located in Munich, TUM is one of Europe's leading research universities. Each year, it honors a group of select international top-level scientists and research alumni, giving them the title of TUM Ambassadors in recognition of their services and acknowledging them as representatives of all the TUM research alumni around the globe.
In 2015, Hager won the prestigious Institute for Advanced Studies Hans Fischer Senior Fellowship, named for TUM Professor Hans Fischer (1881-1945), who was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1930 for his pioneering work on hemoglobin and related structures. These three-year fellowships are awarded to outstanding international scientists who explore innovative, high-risk topics in collaboration with a TUM research group. Hager is working on the modeling of data on human task performance, with the goal of creating intelligent robotic assistants that will enhance human ability through individualized training.
