“2009 Kendall S. Carpenter Memorial Advising Award.”
Delchamps was one of four [Carpenter Memorial Advising] awardees honored on May 23rd at a Trustee-Faculty dinner "which recognizes the winners of university-wide teaching and advising awards along with newly tenured faculty." A committee of previous winners provided nominees for the award to President Skorton who in turn made the final selection based on Professor Delchamp's "wonderful testimonials from students and colleagues about [his] advising."
Cornell Trustee Stephen Ashley established the Carpenter Awards in honor of Kendall S. Carpenter, a professor of business management at Cornell from 1954 -1967. The Kendall S. Carpenter Memorial Advising Award recognizes an individual's "sustained and distinguished contributions of professorial faculty and senior lecturers to undergraduate advising."
Professor Delchamps has been on the faculty of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering since 1982. His research focuses on applying techniques from dynamical systems theory, game theory, and stochastic processes to the modeling, analysis, and design of natural and artificial complex multi-agent systems. Such systems arise in variety of application areas ranging from biology to telecommunication networking to economics.
