Seven engineering faculty members receive NSF CAREER awards
Seven Princeton Engineering faculty members are among the 2021 recipients of the National Science Foundation’s CAREER awards.
The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) program offers the NSF’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. Each award provides up to $500,000 over five years, enabling early-career academic scientists and engineers to build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.
This year’s new awardees from the School of Engineering and Applied Science are:
Pierre-Thomas Brun, assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering, for the project Engineering interfacial flows and instabilities in solidifying liquids;
Daniel Cohen, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, for the project Engineering approaches to control collective cell migration using electrotaxis;
Kelsey Hatzell, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, for the project Understanding Interfaces in Solid State Energy Storage Systems and Cross-Disciplinary Education;
Felix Heide, assistant professor of computer science, for the project Perceptual cameras: Forming images through scene interpretation;
Anirudha Majumdar, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, for the project Generalization and safety guarantees for learning-based control of robots;
Ravi Netravali, assistant professor of computer science, for the project Adaptive Web Execution: Supporting Billions of Diverse Users by Adapting Execution to Available Resources; and
Jeff Thompson, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, for the project Quantum Computing with Circular Rydberg Atoms.
