Professor Shriram Krishnamurthi of Brown University's Department of Computer Science (Brown CS) has just received the SIGSOFT Influential Educator Award. Presented annually, it's given to an educator or educators who have made significant contributions to, and impact on, the field of software engineering through accomplishments as teachers, mentors, researchers (in education or learning), authors, and/or policy makers. In particular, the award committee noted Shriram's contributions to the advancement of the research and practice of software engineering.
The award is international recognition of continued strength in education at Brown CS, and it follows recent awards for three faculty members and one PhD student that highlight campus-wide recognition of the Department's teaching excellence. It comes less than halfway into a busy year in which Shriram has already given keynote addresses at Programming 2018 and elsewhere, written a cover story for Communications of the ACM, and been appointed to co-lead the CACM Research Highlights Editorial Board. With this win, he joins Brown CS alums Barbara Ryder and the late David Notkin, who won the prestigious award in 2015 and 2012, respectively.
The full list of winners dating back to 2009 is available here.
