UW CSE’s David Notkin wins ACM SIGSOFT Influential Educator Award

David Notkin – Bradley Chair in Computer Science & Engineering – has been honored with the Influential Educator Award from SIGSOFT, the ACM Special Interest Group on Software Engineering.

David is being recognized for “tremendous impact in graduate-level education, in mentoring junior researchers, and in nurturing future researchers.”

The award was initiated in 2009, and in the first year was awarded posthumously to David’s Ph.D. advisor, CMU’s Nico Habermann.  David will receive the award at the International Conference on Software Engineering in Zurich in June.

David has graduated 19 Ph.D. students and 18 Masters students.  He received the University of Washington Distinguished Graduate Mentor Award in 2000.

Congratulations David!
