Prof Tom Doeppner receives President’s Award

The themes of collegiality and collaboration were unavoidable as colleagues and friends reflected on the news that Thomas W. Doeppner, Associate Professor (Research) and Vice Chair of the Computer Science Department, had just received Brown University’s President’s Award for Excellence in Faculty Governance. He joins previous winner John Savage of the Department, who was honored in 2009. “Tom is one of the elders of BrownCS,” explains Department Chair Roberto Tamassia, “and this award really celebrates his vision. He has a tremendous understanding of Brown’s educational and research mission, and it’s led him to work individually with hundreds of students every year, getting to know their goals and ensuring that they’re successful.”
