The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering would like to congratulate its awardees on their having been recognized in the recent 2019 Award Ceremony.
Professor John Owens, who won the ECE Faculty Distinguished Research Award, said, “I’m surprised and thankful, and deeply appreciative of the recognition of my colleagues for the successes we’ve had in our research group. And what an honor to be part of an awards ceremony that recognized so many deserving students!”
Regarding his being a part of the UC Davis ECE, he also said, “I’m proud to work with a great team of people, from my amazing faculty colleagues to a group of talented, hardworking staff to supportive, thoughtful department and college leadership. I’m so proud to call this department my home.”
Furthermore, he highlights the work of the students in his research group, saying, “Every piece of work we do in our group is led by students. All of our successes are due to them. I couldn’t be prouder of all their accomplishments, at least until they graduate and go on to do even greater things with their careers and their lives. Building this research group, one that cooperates and collaborates and shares in each others’ successes, is the absolute highlight of my career.”
The award was presented by an honored guest, and wife of the late Dr. Anil Jain, Mohini Jain. We thank Mohini and her family for attending our awards ceremony and for being a part of the ECE family.
Congratulations again Prof. Owens -- you deserve it!
