Sule Ozev, a professor of electrical engineering in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, part of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University, has been awarded the Joseph C. Palais Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award for the 2023–2024 academic year.
Ozev’s accomplishments in research, teaching and volunteering her time to help her students and advance the field of electrical engineering made her an ideal choice for the award.
The Palais Award, established in 2016 by its namesake, electrical engineering Professor Emeritus Joseph Palais, celebrates the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering faculty members who demonstrate all-around excellence in research, teaching and community service.
“I am grateful to my colleagues for recognizing my hard work and having the right priorities as an educator,” Ozev says. “I am thrilled to receive this award and will continue working hard to deliver both on research and education goals.”
Zachary Holman, the vice dean of research and innovation in the Fulton Schools and Ozev’s colleague in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, nominated her for the award. The two worked together on ASU’s proposal for the Southwest Advanced Prototyping Hub, a $40 million government funding opportunity to deliver scalable microelectronics prototyping capabilities.
