Frank Tompa - Computer Science
No one has supervised more graduate students in Computer Science than Prof. Tompa, a feat in itself when you consider the size of the School. However, to have received letters of support from most of those students is a clear indication of the very positive and personal impact he had on each one of his students. All of his students made note of his care and diligence in helping each of them select a research topic, and of the importance he placed on their selection rather than his. His former students have been highly successful, and each one of them emulate Prof. Tompa’s mentoring style with their own research group.
