EE Lab Manager is SoE’s Staff Member of the Year
Keith Gaul, manager of instructional laboratories for Stanford’s Department of Electrical Engineering, was recently recognized as the 2013 Shah Award/Staff Member of the Year by the School of Engineering (SoE).
Gaul manages the facilities for the department’s teaching labs. There are at least eight classes per quarter that utilize a lab component, and he often goes above and beyond to ensure students are getting the most out of their learning environment. He has been working with the EE community since 1988, first as an electronics technician at the Center for Integrated Systems (CIS) (which later became the Stanford Nanofabrication Facility (SNF)). He transitioned to the department in 2000 as a network specialist and then began managing the teaching labs in 2003.
“This is a very well-deserved recognition of Keith’s great contributions to our department,” says EE Professor and Chair Abbas El Gamal.
One SoE staff member is recognized annually as Staff Member of the Year with the Shah Award. The recipient receives a cash award made possible by an endowment funded by the Haresh C. Shah family in 1995. Professor Shah is an emeritus professor of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and, during his tenure at Stanford, he truly appreciated the staff's work and dedication and understood the important role staff play in academic endeavors.
Gaul received this accolade during a recent awards ceremony, which also included recognition of SoE staff for their years of service in five-year increments. Congratulations to the 10 EE staff members recognized in 2013:
40 Years: Tharman Patton
35 Years: Fely Barrera
30 Years: Gail Chun-Creech
15 Years: Evelyn Castaneda, Greig Cameron Scott
5 Years: Adam Covington, Beverly Davis, Blanka Magyari-Kope, Teresa Nguyen, Guru Parulkar
