Awards

  • Fellow, ASM International, 2021. Link
  • Boyer Award for Excellence in Teaching Innovation(w/W Windl), 2015.
    This award within the OSU College of Engineering recognized the development of a novel undergraduate modeling & simulation course in which students integrate atomistic and continuum computational techniques to design and maximize the mechanical performance of a polycrystalline beam. Typically, one award is given annually among ~ 300 faculty in engineering.
  • Faculty Innovator of the Year Award(w/K Flores), Ohio Board of Regents, 2011.
    This state-wide award recognized the development of online instructional and assessment modules in an introductory course on materials science and engineering taken by nearly 700 OSU undergraduates per year. The modules significantly reduced cost while providing increased achievement through a “mastery approach” that offers students multiple attempts to reach key milestones/skills in the course. This was one of 2-3 awards given across the state that year.
  • Boyer Award for Excellence in Teaching Innovation, 2006
    This award within the OSU College of Engineering recognized the use of technology to incorporate online and live video broadcasting to enable distance students – including high achieving students in an area high school – to learn introductory concepts in material science and engineering. The technology was also used to broadcast live experiments—including mechanical testing, electron microscopy, and casting into classrooms with up to 300 students. Typically, one award is given annually among ~ 300 faculty in engineering.
  • Lumley Research Award, 2005.
    This award recognized research achievements by the nominee in the area of multilayer thin films. Typically, 10 or so awards are given by the OSU College of Engineering among about 300 faculty.
  • Bernd T Mattias Scholar, 2001.
    This honor was bestowed by Los Alamos National Labs (LANL) and it provided the opportunity for a year-long period of research at LANL. Past recipients include: Richard Hoagland, David Pines, Barry Carter, Armen Khachaturyan, Robin Grimes, Brian Maple, and others. Only one award is made each year.
  • Boyer Award for Excellence in Teaching Innovation, 1997
    This award within the OSU College of Engineering recognized the development of a comprehensive set of presentation material to teach an introductory course on materials science and engineering. The material was marketed by John Wiley and Sons and used across the US, in Europe, and Australia. Typically, one award is given among ~ 300 faculty in engineering.
