American Association for the Advancement of Science Honors Carnegie Mellon Engineering and Philosophy Professors

Pradeep Khosla

Clark Glymour
PITTSBURGH—The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has named as 2004 Fellows Pradeep K. Khosla, dean of the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, and Clark Glymour, Alumni University Professor of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon.

Each year the AAAS, the world's largest general scientific society and publisher of the prestigious journal Science, bestows the distinction of Fellow on scientists who have made significant contributions in their field. Khosla was selected for significant contributions to the design of reconfigurable real-time software systems; the design of novel robotic mechanisms; and for leadership in undergraduate and graduate education in electrical and computer engineering and robotics. Khosla is the Philip and Marsha Dowd Professor in the College of Engineering and School of Computer Science, and he is the co-director of CyLab, Carnegie Mellon's cybersecurity research center.

Glymour was honored for fundamental contributions to providing a theory of causal discovery from non-experimental data and for advancing the practice of causal discovery through applications. Glymour has developed methods for computerized search for causal explanations and for using causal knowledge in predicting the effects of experiments, policies and other interventions in social and natural systems. He previously served as head of the Department of Philosophy, which is part of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Carnegie Mellon.
