Dr. Hamed Moftakhari.

Dr. Hamed Moftakhari, assistant professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering, and the students in his lab will set up a computer modeling system that helps monitor minor floods, or nuisance floods, along the country’s coastline to raise awareness of the impacts of rising sea level.

Dr Sevgi Gurbuz.

Dr. Sevgi Zubeyde Gurbuz, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, will enable further exploration of next-generation AI-enhanced radars.

The National Science Foundation selected the two professors for a CAREER Award, one of the nation’s most prestigious honors for top-performing young scientists, during the recently completed academic year. Each grant will provide about $550,000 for research, education and outreach efforts.
