CSAIL researcher Fox Harrell was recently awarded a fellowship at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Science (CASBS) at Stanford University for 2014-15.
One of the oldest and most prestigious such honors in academia, the CASBS fellowship recognizes those who have made significant scholarly contributions in their field and whose current work shows great intellectual promise.
Harrell's work explores the relationship between imaginative cognition and computation. His research involves developing new forms of computational narrative, gaming, social media, and related digital media based in computer science, cognitive science, and digital media arts. He is also director of the Imagination, Computation, and Expression Laboratory at MIT.
In 2013 he published "Phantasmal Media: An Approach to Imagination, Computation, and Expression" (MIT Press).
