Brown University Assistant Professor of Engineering Anita Shukla has been selected to receive an Office of Naval Research (ONR) Director of Research Early Career Grant. This is an extremely selective grant that will help cover research expenses up to $200K per year for five years.
The Initiative to Maximize Student Development, which has increased the diversity of doctoral students in the life sciences and supported student achievement, will expand to serve physical sciences, engineering and mathematics.
Brown University Assistant Professors of Engineering Christian Franck and David Henann are among five principal investigators for an Office of Naval Research award worth $3.35 million over four years, led by Franck. The group will be investigating the finite deformation, time-dependent material response of soft matter due to inertial cavitation.
