Only five years ago, Professor Shriram Krishnamurthi of Brown University's Computer Science Department (Brown CS) was the inaugural winner of SIGPLAN's Robin Milner Young Researcher Award. But age comes fast. A needle skips on a record somewhere, the hair of the youthful researcher is turned white, and the mantle of Experience is clapped onto Shriram's shoulders.

The Università della Svizzera Italiana, the primary university for the Italian part of Switzerland, will be awarding him an honorary doctorate in May. Shriram is sensitive to the short duration in which he's gone from a Young Researcher to Elder Statesman. Nevertheless, recognizing his transition, Shriram says, "I will do my best to act as crotchety as possible to honor this passage."
