This grant is a reflection of Ellen’s leadership and significant impact on society.

Ellen was selected to further develop her research in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision in the Department of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics at her host institution, the University of Warsaw, Poland, beginning in March 2023.
