Joel is a rising star at UNL. By serving in these two roles, he creates and maintains many websites and web applications, always with a creative eye to making them user-friendly and high-quality. His creativity is expressed in a myriad of graphics that he designs for publications, the web and increasingly for faculty grant proposals. Many faculty clients have praised Joel for his design excellence. As further evidence of Joel’s success, he recently won a global award in the International Science and Engineering Challenge, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the journal Science for his 3-D image of variable diameter carbon nanotubes, which helped visualize the research of Professor Yongfeng Lu of our electrical engineering department. His competition for the award included 212 entries from 33 countries, representing every continent except Antarctica. Joel is a treasured and award-winning colleague!
