Six College of Engineering faculty members are among the National Science Foundation (NSF)’s 160 early career researchers who will receive five years of funding to explore new areas of research. 

The Georgia Tech researchers are:

  • Chloé Arson, assistant professor, School of Civil and Environmental Engineering
  • Asegun Henry, assistant professor, George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering
  • Jonathan Rogers, assistant professor, George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering
  • Phanish Suryanarayana, assistant professor, School of Civil and Environmental Engineering

The financial support for the awards comes from the NSF’s Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program. 

Begun in 1995, the CAREER program provides promising junior faculty the opportunity to pursue outstanding research, excellence in teaching, and the integration of education and research.

Each CAREER award provides a minimum of $500,000 over
five years. This year’s Georgia Tech CAREER awards total approximately $80 million, out of an estimated $226 million for the NSF program overall.
