Professor receives grant for research and teaching

Michael Keller, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, has received a prestigious National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award. The honor recognizes talented early-career faculty members with grants to support integrated research and teaching.

Michael KellerKeller will receive $400,000 over the next five years to investigate the synthesis and characterization of active composite materials that will help engineers determine if a composite component is damaged. The research will ultimately make it easier to detect and repair damage in complicated composite parts, allowing engineers to design lighter, more efficient structures.
