Dr. Da Hsuan Feng, vice president for research and graduate education at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), has been selected as a recipient of the Association of Chinese American Professionals (ACAP) Distinguished Achievement Award.

The award, which has been presented annually for 10 years, is given in recognition of strong leadership in technical and professional fields. In selecting Feng for the honor, the ACAP award committee cited his work in the areas of network architecture and computational physics, mathematical physics, nuclear physics and quantum mechanics and his achievements in leveraging academia, government and industry in applications of information and communication technology.

Feng will receive the award on July 13 at a ceremony that will be part of a two-day annual ACAP conference at the Adam’s Mark Hotel in Houston. He is one of three winners of this award this year. The others are Dr. Su-Seng Pang, associate vice chancellor of strategic research initiatives at Louisiana State University, and Dr. Theresa Chiang, associate vice president for student services at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio. The award usually is given to two people each year.

Feng, a prominent theoretical physicist with notable achievements in the areas of international affairs, government service, business entrepreneurship and public education, was appointed UTD’s first vice president for research and graduate education in November 2000. He earned a bachelor’s degree in physics from Drew University and master’s and Ph.D. degrees in theoretical nuclear physics from the University of Minnesota.

The ACAP was formed in 1978. The organization is based in Houston and has members in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas and Oklahoma.
