Professor Francesco Bullo was one of three recipients of the 2015 UCSB Outstanding Graduate Mentorship Awards. The awards were presented at a ceremony during the April 23rd Academic Senate Faculty Legislature Meeting.
Professor Bullo, also Chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, has had an incredibly strong track record in the mentorship and guidance of many graduate students, both in a research context as well as in a service role as chair of the graduate program. His graduate students have gone on to oustanding careers in research centers, high tech companies, and top universities. One of his former students who now holds an assistant professor appointment said of Bullo: “I cannot imagine a better advisor and mentor.”
