Three IMS faculty members were among eight recently announced recipients of the NSF CAREER Award.

Dr. Alix Deymier (Biomedical Engineering) will work to elucidate the relationship between skeletal composition, structure, and physiological pH in terms of how it releases ions to regulate the body’s pH.

Dr. Ying Li (Mechanical Engineering) will develop a machine learning model to better understand the properties of a promising sustainable material.

Dr. Jasna Jankovic (Materials Science and Engineering) is working to increase the durability of electrodes in zero-emission energy systems. These systems include fuel cells, electrolyzers, batteries, and supercapacitors.  Read the full UConn Today story
