for extraordinary research

Photo: Cidy ColingeProfessors Cindy Colinge, electric and electronic engineering, and Kimo Ah Yun, communication studies have been recognized for their outstanding research in the fields technology and communication. The award presentation and talks by the recipients will be at 4 p.m., Thursday, March 13 in the University Union’s Hinde Auditorium.

Colinge is being recognized for her research on increasing the processing capacity of semiconductors. Ah Yun is being recognized for his research on increasing organ donorship by reducing communication barriers in the donor process. At the presentation, Colinge will talk on “The Evolution of the Semiconductor Industry” and Ah Yun will address “Using Organ Donation Research to Save Lives.”

Photo: Kimo Ah Yun The President’s Award was established in 1989 and recognizes extraordinary research and creative activity over the past five years by professors who are in their first 10 years of service at CSUS. This year, for the first time, two professors are being recognized. Colinge joined the University’s faculty in 1993 and Ah Yun in 1996.

Both recipients are CSUS alums and received financial aid for their doctoral work through the California State University Forgivable Loan/Doctoral Incentive Program. The program offers loans to students interested in teaching careers at a CSU campus and is the largest program in the nation designed to increase diversity within the pool of faculty candidates.
