Associate Professor (Research) Tom Doeppner, Vice Chair of Brown University's Computer Science Department (Brown CS), has been chosen by Brown's graduating senior class to receive the Barrett Hazeltine Citation. The other recipient was Monica Linden, Senior Lecturer in Neuroscience. Named for a beloved professor emeritus, the annual award recognizes excellence in teaching, guidance, and support by two members of the faculty and/or administration. Writing to Tom, a member of the award committee says, "As the person who writes the text of the citations and spends a couple of days culling through student submitted nominations, I have to tell you how much your students appreciate you, and how much of an impact you have made on them."
Tom is the second Brown CS recipient of the award, following Professor Paul Valiant, who was honored in 2016. He was recognized at the President's Reception for the class, and he joins numerous notable prior recipients, including award-winning author James Morone, Barbara Tannenbaum of the Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies, and Michael Lysaght, founder and director emeritus of Brown University’s Center for Biomedical Engineering.
