Mung Chiang, Keller Center director and  Arthur LeGrand Doty Professor of Electrical Engineering, was named one of the 177 Guggenheim Fellows for 2014.  

Since 1925, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation has annual offered Fellowships to artists, scholars and scientists in all fields.  Fellowships are appointed on the basis of impressive achievement in the past and exceptional promise for future accomplishments.

Chiang is researching effective learning mechanisms on a massive scale and he hopes to use the fellowship to reach out to pedagogy specialists and people with learning disabilities such as attention deficit disorder.
