Pozzi Awarded CMU Berkman Faculty Development Grant
Assistant Professor Matteo Pozzi was recently awarded a CMU Berkman Faculty Development Grant. Pozzi's proposal, "Sensing Networks for Urban Systems," will investigate how sensing networks extended to a whole urban area can improve the safety and efficiency of infrastructure systems. As part of this study, Pozzi will look at how a network of sensors can be placed and deployed for infrastructure monitoring so as to collect meaningful data in an efficient manner.
The Berkman program was established to help support projects that would otherwise be difficult to fund. The program is directed primarily to junior faculty whose access to external support is less well developed, and to faculty working in chronically under-funded areas. The Berkman Faculty Development Fund, supported by a gift in the memory of Sybiel Altman Berkman, A'31, is a small grants program in support of professional development. Full-time faculty in teaching, research, tenure and librarian/archivist tracks are eligible.
