Seven outstanding young faculty members in the College of Engineering at North Carolina State University have been chosen to receive Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) awards from the National Science Foundation.
The NSF CAREER award is one of the most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty members who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations.
The recipients are:
Dr. Hsiao-Ying Shadow Huang, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, for her research proposal, “Restoring Function in Chronic Venous Insufficiency: Unraveling the Structural Mechanics of Venous Valve Tissues.”
Dr. Edgar Lobaton, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, for his research proposal, “Data Representation and Modeling for Unleashing the Potential of Multi-Modal Wearable Sensing Systems.”
With these awards, faculty members in the College of Engineering at NC State have racked up 68 CAREER awards since 2000.
