minutia press.
Thank you

Between all my alleged trips mentioned in the note below, I somehow found sufficient time to be a reasonable teacher. I was notified this past week that I have won "Professor of the Year" in an election conducted by the Engineering School.

This came as a great surprise, and I am grateful for this show of support from my students.

It's been a tough semester for me, and I constantly have the nagging feeling that I'm not doing anything as well as I'd like. The ceremony for this is April 25 at 2 PM, in Whittaker Hall I think. I leave town that afternoon for one of my superfluous trips, this time to an NSF PI meeting that funds the liquid architecture work.

Thank you for this honor; I hope to live up to this reputation.


Although I didnt vote I would have the same opinion. Hopefully you come back and take another course before I graduate.

Congratulations! I can't think of anyone more deserving. But I do find myself wondering if more professors will begin to emulate your policy of serving snacks during exams because of this award. I'd hate for you to lose your cachet.

Congratulations! I am thrilled for you. After all I have read on your site, I am confident it was very much deserved.
