Prof. Jingwei Hu receives CAREER award

04-20-2017

Jingwei Hu is the recipient of a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for her project "Predictive Simulations of Complex Kinetic Systems." The award is considered one of the most prestigious for promising researchers in science and engineering.

The project aims to build an integrated program of research and education focused on advances in predictive simulations of complex kinetic systems.  The research objective of this project is to develop highly efficient stochastic and multiscale numerical methods for Boltzmann-like kinetic equations. A parallel educational objective is to create innovative opportunities for students at all levels to improve science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and promote career interest in these disciplines, especially among female students.

Congratulations to Prof. Hu.
