A Distinguished Lecture Series in his honor and celebrating his love of learning, a passion for teaching, and a commitment to scientific inquiry was inaugurated in 2003 by NYU's Tandon School of Engineering. Initially funded by two of his grateful former students, the series commemorates his intellectual curiosity and wide-ranging interests by covering all areas of scientific endeavor, from Anthropology to Zoology [https://engineering.nyu.edu/academics/departments/chemical-and-biomolecular-engineering/distinguished-lecture-series].
