David Ferguson is a distinguished service professor of technology and society and applied mathematics at Stony Brook University. He is chair of the department of technology and society. He has led numerous projects, including several NSF projects, aimed at improving undergraduate and graduate education in mathematics, science, engineering and technology. Dave co-directed the NSF-supported Algorithm Discovery Development Project and two NSF-funded Faculty Enhancement workshops on the teaching of introductory computer science courses. With support from the Sloan Foundation, he developed a course in applications of mathematics for liberal arts students. He co-designed and co-taught a multidisciplinary course, jointly offered by biological sciences and the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, on computer modeling of biological systems. He was Co-P.I. on a multi-campus project, funded by NSF, on Mathematical Sciences and Their Applications throughout the Curriculum. In the 2004-2005 academic year, he used a SENCER approach in redesigning and teaching a course on the theme of “quantitative modeling and decision making.” In 1992, Dave received the State University of New York Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. He is a state and national leader in programs to enhance the participation of underrepresented minority students in undergraduate science, mathematics, engineering and technology programs. He is director of the NSF-supported SUNY Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Program and SUNY Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate. In 1997, he received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring. His recent education awards include the Archie Lacey Award of the New York Academy of Sciences and the Engineering Educator Award of the Long Island Joint Committee on Engineering.
