ECE Ph.D. student Stephan Koev is one of the recipients of the 2007 American Vacuum Society's (AVS) Graduate Research Award, a prestigious prize that draws nationwide competition each year. Stephan is advised by Associate Professor Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR).

Stephan is the third student from Ghodssi's MEMS Sensors and Actuators Lab to be honored with the award in five years; Nima Ghalichechian won the award in 2006 and Alireza Modafe won in 2002. Both Nima and Alireza were also advised by Dr. Ghodssi—who coincidentally won this same award when he was a graduate student.

The award consists of a $1,000 cash award, a certificate, and reimbursed travel support to attend the International Symposium. Approximately ten awards are given annually. The AVS award will be presented at the AVS 54th International Symposium in Seattle this October.
