COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Dr. Sue Geller, professor of mathematics at Texas A&M University, has been selected by the Texas A&M Women’s Faculty Network as the recipient of its 2013 Outstanding Mentoring Award.
Geller will be formally presented with the annual award recognizing Texas A&M senior faculty members who offer copious time, effort and energy to guide and support junior faculty as part of the WFN Spring Luncheon, set for Monday (April 14) in the Memorial Student Center on the Texas A&M campus. Geller will receive a commemorative plaque and a check for $500.
Nominees for the award must be associate or full professors who have served as a mentor in the WFN Mentoring Program, a voluntary program in which experienced faculty members are paired with new faculty to aid with the latter group's transition into a new job setting. In addition, award candidates must not have previously received the award within the past five years.
Geller, who holds both a masters and a doctorate from Cornell University, joined the Texas A&M Mathematics faculty in 1981. Since 1994, she also has held a joint appointment in the Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences, where her expertise has proven useful in developing accurate mathematical and statistical methods of studying small-sample data.
