Biological Sciences names outstanding faculty
The Division of Physical and Biological Sciences has announced the
recipients of the Outstanding Faculty Awards for 2001-02 and 2002-03.
Kenneth Bruland, professor and chair of ocean sciences, received
the award for 2001-02, and Bruce Cooperstein, professor of mathematics,
received the 2002-03 award.
The division established the Outstanding Faculty Award in 1993 to recognize
faculty members who have shown distinction in their research, teaching,
and commitment to service.
Bruland studies the roles of trace elements in biogeochemical processes
in the ocean. He conducts research on the role of iron as a limiting
nutrient in certain areas off the California coast, and also studies
the toxic effects of metals such as copper in contaminated coastal waters.
Cooperstein conducts research in theoretical mathematics and is involved
in efforts to improve the teaching of mathematics. He is a principal
investigator of the Monterey Bay Area Mathematics Project and was a
Pew Scholar with the Carnegie Institute for the Advancement of Teaching
