Congratulations to Dr. Casey Godwin, who will receive a Research Faculty Recognition Award.
The Office of the Vice President for Research will honor four research faculty members with its annual recognition awards for their outstanding scholarly achievements and significant contributions to their academic fields. All four will be recognized at the President’s Faculty Awards event this fall.
The Research Faculty Recognition Award is presented to a research assistant professor or assistant research scientist based on exceptional scholarly achievements, as evidenced by publications and other activities in an academic field of study.
Casey Godwin joined the School for Environment and Sustainability as an assistant research scientist in 2018, and his research focuses on the effects of harmful algal blooms in lakes Erie and Huron. Since 2019, Godwin has secured four research grants from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and led two master’s projects that supported nine graduate students.
“It is because of the talented and innovative research faculty that the University of Michigan is well prepared to meet the challenges we face in a world of rapid change,” said Rebecca Cunningham, vice president for research and the William G. Barsan Collegiate Professor of Emergency Medicine.
“Their ongoing commitment to serving the world through research, scholarship and creative practice is a major reason why the university is able to maintain a global reputation as a leading public research university.”
