Yadama receives NSF CAREER award

Dr. Vikram Yadama received a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation for his proposal “Development of high-performance lignocellulosic composites for building envelopes: Authentic learning about sustainable materials through research-based inductive approach.” This program provides NSF’s most prestigious awards to support junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholar. The long-term educational goal of this CAREER project is to prepare a new generation of engineers cognizant of sustainable building materials from lignocellulosic fibers and equipped with the knowledge to design and manufacture bio-based composite products for building envelopes in a net zero energy construction. This study aims to advance the science of … » More …
