“Sturtevant’s impressive research accomplishments in the field of Artificial Intelligence, along with his unparalleled commitment to teaching, are important contributions to the University of Denver and the Ritchie School in particular,” says Haluk Ogmen, senior associate dean of the Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science. “I congratulate him on this outstanding achievement.”
