Two in Engineering Receive NSF Career Awards

Two faculty members in Penn State's College of Engineering have received five-year grants from the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development program. The program helps engineers and scientists who are likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century develop their research and teaching as they begin their academic careers. Victor Pasko, associate professor of electrical engineering, received $350,000 to study sprites, one of several large-scale luminous phenomena that occur in the Earth's atmosphere above active thunderstorm systems. Jelena Srebric, assistant professor of architectural engineering and Pearce Development Professor, received $375,000 to study air quality and thermal comfort in relation to the indoor environment of buildings.
