Joseph Tam has received the Science Excellence in Service Award (2022)

The citation is "For sustained leadership in the construction and support of essential IT services” and here are some quotes from his nomination letter: Joseph Tam is the rock of the Mathematics Department’s IT team… for over 30 years… (he) oversees a large diverse ecosystem of network and computational infrastructure. Our ability to get things done depends critically on IT services that must be “always on” … and Joe is the one we rely on to keep moving forward... Joe has the amazing depth of knowledge to give wise, on-point, security-conscious advice to people of all kinds on problems of all sorts… During the lockdown days of the pandemic, Joe even made bicycle-powered house calls to some faculty and staff who needed help with the online connections at their home offices.
