Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) professors create knowledge. Each year IPFW identifies several “Featured Faculty” to honor teachers whose outstanding research has contributed to the sciences, the arts, the humanities, and society.

This year’s IPFW Featured Faculty are William DeMott, professor of biology; James Moore, associate dean, Doermer School of Business and professor of management; Hosni Abu-Mulaweh, professor of mechanical engineering; and Hedayeh Samavati, professor of economics.
