The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), during its recent EECS Celebrates 2019 ceremony, presented three IMES faculty members with the Burgess (1952) & Elizabeth Jamieson Prizes for Excellence in Teaching, recognizing outstanding teaching happening alongside first-rate research.

Thomas Heldt, W.M. Keck Career Development Professor in Biomedical Engineering and associate professor of electrical and biomedical engineering, was acknowledged for revamping 6.021 (Cellular Neurophysiology and Computing) and 6.022 (Quantitative and Clinical Physiology).

Peter Szolovits, professor of computer science and engineering, and David Sontag, Hermann L. F. von Helmholtz Career Development Professor of Medical Engineering and an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science, were honored for developing the new class 6.S897 (Machine Learning for Healthcare).

“It is a great pleasure to teach our students in the classroom and the laboratory,” Heldt stated. “Being recognized for doing the job we love is a great honor and was entirely unexpected.”
