Davis Receives Poole and Kent Senior Faculty Teaching Award
Professor Christopher Davis (ECE) has been awarded the 2012 Poole and Kent Senior Faculty Teaching Award. He was selected for this award in recognition of his contributions to the Clark School of Engineering as an exceptional engineering educator, and was presented with the award at the Commencement Ceremony on May 21, 2012.
Recent graduate Mohammed Ali Eslami describes Professor Davis as practical and understanding. He continues, “I feel that his "work at your own pace" management style and experimental importance has really widened the opportunities I have to consider as I transition to the work place, as I am now ready to both simulate my hypothesis as well as have a good feel for what it takes to make it practical.”
Professor Davis’ graduate advisee, John Rzasa, says, “Working for Dr. Davis over the years has been one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences of my life. His combination of cheerful demeanor, boundless intellect, and clever engineering skills make working for him a true joy. I think his approachability greatly inspires his undergraduate and graduate students to ask questions and learn well, whatever the subject may be.”
