I’m in a state of shock… I was just notified today that I just won the ASEE Engineering Research Council’s Curtis W. Mcgraw Research Award in the non-PhD granting program category! I will be receiving the award at the ASEE ERC’s annual business meeting in March.
This award means a lot to me. I was selected as a McGraw-Hill national merit scholar my senior year of high school. It’s amazing to receive an award as an associate professor that is named after one of the founders of McGraw-Hill, a company I credit with giving me one of the most valuable scholarships I received as an undergrad.
A big thank you to my department for nominating me, and West Point’s MSE committee for putting me forward as West Point’s nominee to the ERC. It’s truly wonderful to be part of a department as supportive as mine.
