Schwartzentruber Receives George Taylor
Career Development Award

Assistant Professor Thomas E. Schwartzentruber has received the 2014 George Taylor Career Development Award for exceptional contributions to teaching.

Endowed within the College of Science and Engineering, the award was established in memory of George W. Taylor, a 1934 graduate of the department of Mechanical Engineering. The Career Development Award is designated to a faculty member who has made outstanding contributions to undergraduate and/or graduate teaching in the College. The award is made by the College P&T committee and the Dean and is granted to candidates for tenure based on their dossier.

"I really enjoy teaching, and receiving this award means a lot to me," says AEM Assistant Professor Tom Schwartzentruber. "I am very appreciative to the committee and Dean for this recognition, and I will continue to do my very best."

Schwartzentruber joined the AEM department in December 2007 after receiving his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan. Since then he has contributed much to the department in the form of teaching, advising and researching. His research utilizes particle simulation methods to model non-equilibrium gas flows. Special focus is given to understanding gas-surface chemistry and gas-phase chemistry under extreme conditions.

As the award recipient, Schwartzentruber will receive an award citation, and honorarium of $10,000 and a copy of the award citation on permanent display outside the Taylor Undergraduate Academic Center in Lind Hall. Other AEM faculty whose citation hang here include Associate Professor Demoz Gebre-Eqziabher, former Professor Ivan Marusic, and former Professor Yiyuan Zhao.
