2013 faculty and staff awards

At an April 30, 2013, celebration for faculty and staff in the Mechanical Engineering Building, the College of Engineering recognized outstanding faculty and staff whose service and contributions extend from the college to the world.

 

Lori Burrow
The Classified Staff Distinguished Achievement Award

Lori Burrow
Electrical and Computer Engineering 

Lori joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2001 and shortly thereafter helped strategically transform the department’s administrative team into a seamless, top-notch group that Duane H. and Dorothy M. Bluemke Professor and Chair John Booske says is the envy of the College of Engineering. She encourages and enables staff to develop their skills. BIO »

Janet Fredrick
Bollinger Academic Staff Distinguished Achievement Award
Janet Fredrick
 
Chemical and Biological Engineering

Fredrick has led and successfully managed efforts for hundreds of pre-award grant and contract activities in increasing number each year—the majority targeting the National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Energy, or National Institutes of Health. In the past three years, these contracts have brought more than $65 million in research funding to the department. BIO »

Sindo Kou
Byron Bird Award for Excellence in a Research Publication
Sindo Kou

Materials Science and Engineering

Among the world's top welding researchers, Materials Science and Engineering Professor Sindo Kou has conducted pioneering research, including coupled 3-D thermo-fluids weld modeling. His papers on heat flow and fluid flow in complex welding systems today are recognized as classics his textbook Welding Metallurgy significantly contributes to the science of welding. BIO »

Pam Kreeger
James G. Woodburn Award for Excellence in Teaching
Pam Kreeger

Biomedical Engineering

A pragmatic approach also has delivered Kreeger’s undergraduate students a wealth of research experiences. As part of their studies, students gain experience writing formal hypotheses and grant proposals, and working with real-world data in collaborative problem solving environments. She also strives to involve undergraduate students in research. BIO »

Mike Morrow
Harvey Spangler Award for Technology-enhanced Instruction
Mike Morrow
Electrical and Computer Engineering

Since he came to UW-Madison, Morrow has demonstrated a deep commitment to bonding with his students, holding as many office hours as possible and sharing stories from his own life to help students get to know him better. And Morrow’s embrace of the blended model has afforded him even more time in class to forge connections with his students. BIO »

Regina Murphy
Harvey Spangler Award for Technology-enhanced Instruction
Regina Murphy

Chemical and Biological Engineering

Murphy transformed CBE 250: Process Synthesis into a blended-learning course. This required course—the first in the challenging chemical engineering sequence—introduces undergraduates to the field and practice of chemical engineering. Through the course, students develop an engineer's ability to organize data, identify a problem, create workable solutions and critically evaluate alternatives. BIO »

Brian Pfleger
Benjamin Smith Reynolds Award for Excellence in Teaching
Brian Pfleger

Chemical and Biological Engineering

Pfleger has mentored 39 undergraduate researchers in his laboratory, where they apprentice with an advanced researcher for a semester, then undertake a project of their own and learn valuable communication skills by providing Pfleger an oral summary that conveys their major accomplishment for the semester.
