08/15/2001

CORVALLIS - Eriko Nurvitadhi of Beaverton, a senior computer engineering student at Oregon State University, has won a $2,000 grant in the Intel 2001 Research Award Contest.

Nurvitadhi was awarded the grant from Intel's Microprocessor Research Lab for his research proposal, "Cellular IP and Proxies for Multimedia Data Transmission in Campus Networks." Other award winners included students from universities such as MIT, Georgia Tech, Princeton and Cornell.

Nurvitadhi will use the award to complete his research project with his faculty adviser, Ben Lee, an OSU associate professor of electrical and computer engineering. He and other award recipients will also present their research findings to panelists at Intel's corporate headquarters in Santa Clara, where the top three projects will be awarded cash prizes of up to $5,000.

"Eriko is one of our best and has other scholarships and awards to prove it," said Lee. "But it's great to see him receive some well-deserved recognition outside of Oregon State."
