Recognizing Faculty Research Excellence

Chancellor Khosla with Professor Thomas Levy and his wife, Alina Levy

Each year, the UC San Diego Academic Senate recognizes two faculty members for their significant contributions to academic excellence in research and groundbreaking discoveries.  This year’s honorees – Professors Rommie Amaro and Thomas Levy – were celebrated yesterday at a reception at the Faculty Club and they both presented lectures on their research.  Chancellor Khosla opened the program by congratulating the honorees.  He said an outstanding faculty is the hallmark of any great university and this honor is given to our most illustrious colleagues.
