LSU College of Engineering faculty are established and recognized in their academic fields for excellence. Some of the world's finest scholars and educators call LSU home. CoE faculty are not only engaging in research that establishes new precedents in their disciplines, they are also helping to produce graduates ready to tackle any future endeavor they wish to pursue.

CoE faculty continually strive to provide the best service for LSU's students, administration and the general public. The following faculty were awarded Professorships by the College this year:

Xin Li, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, received the Mr. and Mrs. C.W. Armstrong Jr. Professorship. Li received his Ph.D. in computer science from State University of New York at Stony Brook in 2008. His areas of specialization include computer graphics, visualization, medical imaging, vision, geometric modeling, computer animation and simulation, virtual reality/environment, computer aided geometric design and human-computer interaction.

William Moe, Ph.D., PE, professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, received the Marvin Rex Clemmons Professorship. Moe received his Ph.D. in 1999 from the University of Notre Dame. His areas of specialization include treatment of gas-phase contaminants in biofilters, anaerobic processes for treatment of water and soil contaminated by chlorinated organic compounds, engineering implications of microbial physiology, molecular tools for characterizing microbial populations, industrial waste treatment and the application of Sequencing Batch Reactors.

Supratik Mukhopadhyay, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, received the Occidental Chemical Corporation Career Development Professorship. Mukhopadhyay received his Ph.D. from the Max Planck Institut fuer Informatik and the University of Saarland in 2001. His areas of specialization include formal verification of software, inference engines, bigdata analytics distributed systems, parallel computing framework and program synthesis.

Kelly Rusch, Ph.D., PE, professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, received the Dow Chemical Distinguished Professorship in Engineering Diversity. She received her Ph.D. from LSU in 1992. Her areas of specialization include microalgal-based biofuels and bioproducts, industrial waste recycle and reuse and engineering education.
