Professor Volker Sick is the recipient of the Rackham Master’s Mentoring Award. This award was established by the Rackham Graduate School to honor and encourage the efforts and accomplishments of faculty who serve as distinguished mentors to master’s degree students. It seeks to recognize faculty members from any discipline who serve as dedicated and inspiring mentors to Rackham master’s students, especially those students who do not intend to pursue doctoral degrees. This award is part of the Graduate School’s continuing effort to foster a culture of high quality graduate mentoring.
Volker Sick is the Director of the W. E. Lay Automotive Laboratory as well as the leader of the the Quantitative Laser Diagnostics Laboratory. His research focuses on developing and applying laser-based and other optical measurement techniques to enable studies of mass and energy transfer at high pressures and high temperatures in mechanically restricted and vibrating environments.
Sick will be honored at a program on April 19 beginning at 2:00 p.m. in the Rackham Amphitheatre.
