Rutgers Senior Sridhar Sriram, public policy/computer science double major, awarded prestigious Gates Cambridge Scholarship

February 21, 2019

Sridhar Sriram’s family always stressed that his actions were only meaningful if they had a positive impact on the people around him.

While studying computer science at Rutgers, that desire to make a difference sparked his interest in eliminating the bias that creeps into algorithms and impacts results from online search engines and social media platforms.

That is the work he hopes to pursue after graduation in May as a recipient of a Gates Cambridge Scholarship, which is awarded to applicants who demonstrate outstanding intellectual ability, leadership potential, and commitment to improving the lives of others.
