Drew Paine, PhD student in the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) and Computer Supported Collaboration (CSC) Lab Manager, has been awarded a College of Engineering Dean's Fellowship for 2012–2013 for outstanding students. Awards were competitive. Each College of Engineering department was allowed to nominate one or two candidates and awardees were chosen from this already select pool.

Awardees were chosen based on numerous criteria including the strength of their personal statement, grades, curriculum vita, and nomination letters from the department chair, advisor, and one additional faculty member. The Dean's Fellowship will help support Paine in furthering his doctoral research. Says Paine, "Through my continued qualitative research I seek to continue to develop an empirical understanding of software engineering that is more expansive and reflective of its role in scientific research practice." Congratulations, Drew!

The Dean's Fellowships are supported by combining a number of College of Engineering awards, Paine's award is supported by the Henry L. Gray Scholarship and the Max E. Gellert Endowed Fellowship.
