Kathleen Emerson and Hansheng Diao

Mathematics Department instructor Hansheng Diao and graduate student Kathleen Emerson were awarded this year's Excellence in Teaching Award by the Undergraduate and Graduate Engineering Student Councils. This student-nominated award is for a professor or TA who "was especially dedicated, taught the material clearly, and simply deserves to be recognized for the hard work he or she put into the course."  These teaching awards are entirely student-run, and any professor or AI instructing an engineering, mathematics, or physics course is eligible. This is the third consecutive year that Diao has received this honor.
