Tina Eliassi-Rad Honored by the CRT Foundation for Her Research on Artificial Intelligence

Tina Eliassi-Rad,, a professor of computer science at Northeastern University, recently received the Lagrange Prize from the CRT Foundation in Turin Italy. The prize is considered the highest international recognition for scientists in the field of complex systems and data.

Dr. Eliassi-Rad was honored for taking “an in-depth look at the evolving scenarios of artificial intelligence and the impacts of science and technology on society,” according to the foundation, which has awarded the Lagrange Prize annually for the past 15 years.

“Her research pushes us to cross new frontiers in understanding data and to think more deeply about the ethics of the algorithms we are creating,” says Alessandro Vespignani, director of Northeastern’s Network Science Institute and president of the ISI Foundation, which coordinates with CRT in awarding the Lagrange Prize. “Her contribution is not just about technological evolution, but raises fundamental questions about their impact and responsibility in our daily lives.”

Prior to joining the faculty at Northeastern University, Dr. Eliassi-Rad was an associate professor of computer science at Rutgers University in New Jersey. Earlier, she was a member of the technical staff and principal investigator at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

Born in the United States but raised in Iran, Dr. Eliassi-Rad holds a bachelor’s degree and a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Wisconsin. She also holds a master’s degree in computer science from the University of Illinois.
