I am pleased to announce that last night at the annual Celebration of Faculty Excellence dinner, Professor David Roy was awarded the University’s highest research honor: the F.O. Butler Award for Excellence in Research.
From the program notes: “Dr. Roy is a member of the NASA MODIS land science team, the NASA Land-Cover/Land-Use Change science team, the GOFC-GOLD Fire Implementation team, and is a member and co-chair of the USGS NASA Landsat science team. He has published more than 65 articles in peer reviewed journals. Since he joined SDSU in 2005 he has been Principal Investigator on NASA grants that total $10 million. The majority of his research concerns the development of satellite remote sensing and advanced computing methods to map and characterize terrestrial change.”
On behalf of the Center, let me extend our congratulations to David for his continuing hard work toward advancing the science and practice of Earth observation!
