Prof. Kulkarni wins the NSF CAREER award

Chemical engineering assistant professor Ambar Kulkarni is one of 500 recipients nationwide to receive a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) Award this year. The NSF CAREER Award, the agency’s most prestigious award for early-career faculty, recognizes researchers who have the potential to be role models and leaders in research and education by funding research projects that can serve as the foundation for the rest of their careers. 

Kulkarni’s proposal, “Designing 3-Dimensional Active Site Environments in Metal-Organic Frameworks for Oxygen Electrochemistry,” aims to help design better and cheaper catalysts for fuel cell applications.
