NSF CAREER award to Laura Miller

Professor Laura Miller is the latest department recipient of a Faculty Early Career Development “CAREER” award from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

As the NSF describes, “The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations.”

Miller’s CAREER award will support her project titled “Mathematical Modeling and Experiments of Neuromechanical Pumping” with $504,236 over five years.

Miller becomes the third person to win a CAREER award while a faculty member of the Department of Mathematics, joining Peter Mucha in 2007 and Jason Metcalfe in 2011, and our fourth awardee overall (Rich McLaughlin won a CAREER award at Utah in 1997 and brought the grant with him when he moved to Carolina).

Congratulations to Laura on this wonderful honor.
