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.
