Congratulations to the following individuals on their outstanding achievements:
Kristi Anseth of chemical and biological engineering was honored with the Society for Biological Engineering’s 2013 James E. Bailey Award.
Clarence “Skip” Ellis, professor emeritus of computer science, received a Fulbright grant to teach a semester course at Ashesi University in Accra, Ghana, starting in January 2014. His course - World Simulation: Culture, Technology and Ethics - will examine how various governments around the world work, teasing out ethical, economic, social and political factors.
Professor Eric Frew of aerospace engineering sciences was named to the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Associate Fellows class of 2014.
Professor Karl Linden of environmental engineering was named president of the International Ultraviolet Association.
Professor Rich Noble received the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) 2013 Innovator of the Year Award this month at the IChemE Awards and Annual Dinner in the United Kingdom.
Dan Scheeres and Jim Voss of aerospace engineering sciences were elected fellows of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
Chemical and Biological Engineering Department Chair and Alfred T. and Betty E. Look Professor Dan Schwartz has been elected to the Chair line of the American Chemical Society's Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry. He will serve as vice chair in 2014, chair elect in 2015, division chair in 2016, and past chair in 2017.
Associate Dean of Education Diane Sieber received the 2013 CU Excellence in Leadership Award.
