Jen-Yu Han, a Geomatics Engineering Ph.D. student working with Professor Boudewijn van Gelder, received the 2006/2007 Stevan J. Kristof Outstanding Graduate Student in Remote Sensing Award. This award is given to recognize achievement and professional potential in remote sensing as related to a discipline at Purdue University. The award recipient is chosen by members of the LARS (Laboratory for Applications of Remote Sensing) awards committee and the LARS director. The award is a certificate and a monetary award from the earnings of the Kristof Endowment Fund. Additionally, the recipient's name is engraved on a plaque on display for a year in the Geomatics area in the School of Civil Engineering.
The National Geodetic Survey (NGS/NOAA) awarded Dr. Han a half-year post-doc appointment to continue his research at Purdue. In February 2007 Dr. Han will become a faculty member at the National Taiwan University.
