Michael Wakin, Ph. D. '06, has received an Excellence in Research award from the Colorado School of Mines. The annual award recognizes a junior and a senior faculty member for their outstanding research accomplishments while at CSM. Wakin received the junior award for faculty with under 10 years of university research after Ph.D./postdoctoral training. Nominations come from CSM colleagues and external letters of recommendation are used to make the final decision.

DSP postdoc and faculty alumnus Rob Nowak recently received both the 2014 IEEE W.R.G. Baker Award and a 2014 Kellett Mid-Career Award from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The IEEE W.R.G Baker Award recognizes the most outstanding work published in any IEEE archival publication between 3 and 5 years prior to the award presentation. Nowak, UW-Madison Computer Sciences Professor Stephen Wright, and Mário A.T. Figueiredo of the Instituto Superior Técnico of Portugal won for their paper "Sparse Reconstruction by Separable Approximation", published in IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing in 2009.

The Kellett Mid-Career Award recognizes outstanding faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who have had tenure for 7 to 20 years and provides research funding to further their excellent work.
