Shout Out to Anja Feldmann

My friend, collaborator and a cohort from old AT&T days, Anja Feldmann, a networking researcher for long, has been awarded the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize 2011. Awesome, congratulations!

About the prize:
The Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize is the highest honour awarded in German research. The Leibniz Programme, established in 1985, aims to improve the working conditions of outstanding scientists and academics, expand their research opportunities, relieve them of administrative tasks, and help them employ particularly qualified young researchers. A maximum of € 2.5 million is provided per award. Prizewinners are first chosen from a slate of nominations put forward by third parties; the final selection is made by the Joint Committee on the basis of a recommendation from the Leibniz Nominations Committee.
