Excerpt from The University News Service’s article, “Three named University of Minnesota Regents Professors

The University of Minnesota Board of Regents has named R. Lawrence Edwards, Vipin Kumar and Michael Osterholm Regents Professors. The designation is the highest level of recognition given to faculty by the University.

"These three professors exemplify the qualities of teaching, research and scholarship that this honor requires,” said University President Eric Kaler. "Pioneers in their respective disciplines, each have made field-shaping discoveries that benefit Minnesotans, the nation and the world.”

William Norris Professor and Department Head Vipin Kumar is world renowned for his work in high performance computing and scientific data mining. He has played a pioneering role in bringing Big Data and earth science together to address one of the grand challenges of our times —understanding the impact of human induced changes on the earth system and its environment.
