Krishnaswamy earns CAREER Award for taking on the challenge of hidden hunger

More than 2 billion people suffer from hidden hunger, a form of malnutrition where individuals lack essential micronutrients — like vitamins and minerals — even though they consume what appears to be an adequate amount of calories. University of Missouri researcher Kiruba Krishnaswamy is focused on tackling this global challenge. She recently received a five-year, $532,000 Early Career Development (CAREER) award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) — the NSF’s most prestigious award for early-career faculty — in support of her project titled “FEAST (food ecosystems and circularity for sustainable transformation) framework to address hidden hunger.”

Nassar awarded NSF CAREER grant to explore mathematics of deployable structures

Assistant Professor Hussein Nassar recently received the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) grant for his work on identifying unifying mathematical models that can explain the behavior of deployable structures. Research into these morphing metamaterials could aid in the designs of airbags, clothing, and even solar panels for space travel.
