The Microsoft Research India Research Fellow Program aims to enable bright, young minds in India to do world class research, and prepare them to become tomorrow’s innovators and leaders. The program trains recent undergrads and masters students on the entire research cycle from problem formulation and modeling, to implementation and writing papers. Past alumni from the Research Fellow program include Bhavish Aggarwal (co-founder CEO OlaCabs), Ganesh Ananthanarayanan (Ph.D. researcher at Microsoft), Rikin Gandhi (founder CEO digital green NGO), and many others. This talk will present several projects our Research Fellows are working on, as well as talk about the application process and upcoming deadlines in February.
