‘PIONEER’S’ WORK NETS RESEARCH AWARD
“UH has many top-notch faculty who could have won this award,” Economou said.
Described by one colleague as a “pioneer” in his field, Economou has spent his 22 years at UH studying how gas-discharge plasmas work. His results have been used for microchip manufacturing, plasma television panels and lasers.
The Excellence in Research and Scholarship Award is given to faculty members who have achieved a substantial record of outstanding research, scholarship or creative activities in their field. The award carries a $5,000 stipend and a plaque.
