Four engineering faculty members 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:

Jonathan Mayer, an assistant professor of computer science and public affairs and William G. Bowen Presidential University Preceptor, for the project Auditing online choice architecture for antitrust effects;

Reza Moini, an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, for the project Tough architected concrete materials: Bio-inspired design, manufacturing, and mechanics;

Michele Sarazen, an assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering, for the project Engineering circular hydrocarbon reactions in zeolite-based catalysts;

and Huacheng Yu, an assistant professor of computer science, for the project Data structures and streaming algorithms.
