CSE Ph.D. alum Zack Ives wins University of Pennsylvania Lindback Award for teaching

UW CSE Ph.D. alumnus Zack Ives, a professor in Computer and Information Science at the University of Pennsylvania, has been honored with the 2010 Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching, Penn’s highest teaching honor.

Ives “has since been a leader in curricular innovations, developing courses on Internet and database systems in which students build their own search engines or database-powered websites. ‘I never imagined an individual student could achieve so much,’ said one student. A recent alumnus who works at Google echoes, ‘there is not a day that goes by at my job that I do not take into consideration the skills and information that I learned in Professor Ives’ class.’”

Congratulations Zack!  Read the Penn press release here.
