Congratulations to Matthew Doty and Joshua Zide on their promotions to associate professors with tenure. The UD Board of Trustees approved their promotions at the 5/7/2013 meeting.
For her work, Kristi L. Kiick, a professor of materials science and engineering and biomedical engineering, will receive the 2013 Academic Research Award at the Delaware BioScience Association’s (Delaware Bio) annual awards gala. Given annually, the award recognizes significant contributions to the advancement of life science research at an academic or medical research institution in Delaware.
Congratulations to Juejun (JJ) Hu on receiving the University's Excellence in Teaching award. "Teaching is a fun inventive process. I draw inspiration from research of my own and others, from everyday life, from conferences I attended, from the news I read, from the movies I watched, and from conversations with people - and these resources may well become examples in my class lectures in the forms of projects, examples, in-class demos and little jokes."
Congratulations to Kristi L. Kiick, a professor of materials science and engineering and biomedical engineering, who is one of 19 women engineers nationwide selected for the Executive Leadership in Academic Technology and Engineering (ELATE at Drexel) program, Class of 2013-14 fellows. A collaboration between Drexel University and Drexel University College of Medicine, ELATE at Drexel focuses on increasing leadership, change and resource management skills among women faculty in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
