Four engineering faculty receive NSF CAREER awards

Four Princeton Engineering faculty members are among the recipients of the National Science Foundation’s CAREER awards during the past year.

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 a minimum of $400,000 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.

New awardees from the School of Engineering and Applied Science are:

Yasaman Ghasempour, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, for the project Agile, adaptable and scalable wireless terahertz networks: Architecture and control;

Boris Hanin, an assistant professor of operations research and financial engineering, for the project Random neural nets and random matrix products;

Ludovic Tangpi, an assistant professor of operations research and financial engineering, for the project A new form of propagation of chaos and its applications to large population games and risk management;

and Aimy Wissa, an assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, for the project Dynamics of extreme locomotion in biological and bioinspired systems: The effect of elasticity on mobility and mechanical power flow.
