Congratulations to Kevin Wang, ICME PhD ’11 and Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech, Department of Aerospace and Ocean Engineering, who was awarded the National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award. This award is among the “National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research in education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.”
With the awarded $526,930 grant, the goal of Kevin’s research is to “understand how cavitation affects solid materials close to the bubbles; and to use this knowledge to be able to predict how cavitation modifies nearby material. The proposed research will provide new scientific insight for a broad range of engineering and biomedical applications, from fabricating materials to curing diseases.”
ICME congratulates Kevin Wang on this impressive achievement.
