Nan Jiang

Professor Nan Jiang of the Department of Computer Science at The Grainger University of Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has obtained a prestigious early-occupation award from the Alfred P. Sloan Basis: a 2024 Sloan Investigate Fellowship.

The Fellowships are bestowed on early-job students judged to be the most promising scientific researchers working right now. Their achievements and prospective area them amid the future generation of scientific leaders in the U.S. and Canada. They come with $75,000 that can be used over two decades to support the recipient’s analysis.

Nan Jiang is an qualified on machine understanding and builds theoretical foundations of reinforcement discovering (RL). He focuses on setting perform approximations that allow for an RL agent to generalize from known states to unfamiliar states for which specific calculations would be infeasible.

Jiang attained his Ph.D. in Computer system Science and Engineering at the College of
