Anne DinningThis fellowship was established by UW CSE Bachelors alumna Anne Dinning and her husband Michael Wolf. After attending UW, Anne received her Ph.D. in computer science from NYU and then became an early employee of the D. E. Shaw group, a specialized investment and technology development firm whose activities center on various aspects of the intersection between technology and finance.

Michael Wolf received his B.S. in Physics and Applied Math from U.C. Berkeley, followed by a Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford University. He joined the D.E. Shaw group and later worked at various firms in the financial and technology industries. His 1991 paper on compilation for improved data locality was included in a 2004 "Best Of" retrospective of the ACM SIGPLAN Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI). Dr. Wolf is currently a full-time stay-at-home parent.
