Dun & Bradstreet’s government segment has named Yaneev Golombek, a Ph.D. student in civil engineering at the University of Colorado, as the recipient of the company’s 2019 Geospatial Data Science Scholarship.
“We are pleased to partner with the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation in support of emerging talent like Yaneev,” Tim Solms, general manager of Dun & Bradstreet Government Solutions,” said in a statement published Thursday.
“Many of our government clients rely on geospatial intelligence to fulfill their diversified mission objectives, and we’re proud to play a part in accelerating innovation in the technology that enables government to do its job more effectively and efficiently,” Solms added.
Golombek will get a scholarship worth $15,000 to support his research into 3D geospatial and analytical applications for transportation. His research is expected to better understand the transportation infrastructure’s role in national security and initiatives to protect the critical infrastructure and support warfighters in urban environments.
The Dun & Bradstreet-USGIF scholarship aims to support a graduate student who pursues research into geospatial data science to address large-scale and data-intensive problems through spatial science, math, computer science and engineering.
