Nouman Azam receives Verna Martin Memorial Scholarship (Expired)

The Department of Computer Science is pleased to announce that Nouman Azam, a fourth-year PhD candidate in our department, has been awarded the Verna Martin Memorial Scholarship in Doctoral Studies. This $20,000 scholarship was established to assist graduate students who are pursuing a Ph.D. in any field of study at the University of Regina. For more information on the scholarship, see

When asked to comment, Nouman said, "I am pleased to be 2013 recipient of Verna Martin Memorial Scholarship.  Awards such as this one provide significant relief from financial worries as well as encouragement for us to concentrate more on academics than finances, because many graduate students have families. Personally, this award is a great source of inspiration for me to help others and give back to the community in the form of productive research."

The following is an abstract of Nouman's current research:


This research focuses on examining and building intelligent models and providing solutions to decision makers for making decisions wisely, especially in situations where many potential options are available and but involve contradictory criteria. Particular interest is on the game-theoretic rough set (GTRS) model that provides an alternative intelligent decision making mechanism by exploiting a game-theoretic environment for analyzing strategic situations between cooperative or conflicting decision making criteria in the probabilistic rough set framework.
