Zhang Receives NSF CAREER Award
Congratulations to Assistant Professor Jessica Zhang on receiving the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award. The CAREER Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the 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. Such activities should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.
Professor Zhang's proposal, "A Parallel Computational Framework of Multiscale Geometric Modeling and Mesh Generation for Cardiac Biomechanics Application," aims to establish a novel parallel computational framework of multiscale geometric modeling and mesh generation that can be applied to cardiac biomechanics. The computational infrastructure will also be transferable to other engineers and scientists constructing accurate computer models.
