UW CSE professor Luis Ceze, who earned his Ph.D. in 2007 from the Computer Science Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, was recognized by his alma mater with its Distinguished Alumni Educator Award. The award, which is based on nominations by members of the UIUC computer science community, recognizes faculty and alumni “who have made outstanding contributions to computer science education and research, and…who excel at motivating computer science students.”
That certainly describes Luis, who has advised a dozen graduate students and received the 2010 ACM Undergraduate Teacher of the Year Award here at UW CSE.
Congratulations to Luis on this latest, well-deserved recognition!
Luis and his fellow award recipients were recognized at a banquet on Friday. Read more about it here.
