In memoriam: Professor David L. Ferguson

We mourn for the passing of Professor David L. Ferguson.

Dr. Ferguson is a great colleague, friend, mentor, and leader.

Dave is so supportive to our research group, the junior faculty, and people in need around him. Without his support, the visiting scholar program, and many other programs and projects that I involve would not be possible. I have learned so much from him and benefited from his leadership and insights.

Dave will be deeply missed and his endeavor will continue.

I created a Wikipedia page of Dr. David L. Ferguson, please help to edit and improve his profile so to let more people know him, his work and impact.


"This scholarship will be awarded to an engineering student from a demographic group that is underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)".
