>> 04/10/2015: Prof. Zavattieri has been named a University Faculty Scholar [Link1] [Link2]

University Faculty Scholars are select associate and full professors who have been in that rank for no more than five years and are on an accelerated path toward academic distinction. In the College of Engineering, they are nominated by committees from their academic areas, and reviewed and recommended by a subcommittee of the College's named and distinguished professors. The dean makes the selection and requests approval by the provost. University Faculty Scholars receive additional funding to support their research. The University Faculty Scholar program was created at Purdue in 1998.
