Promising research that could help provide a source of clean energy and improve environmental safety has earned an Arizona State University senior sustainability scientist support from the National Science Foundation.
The NSF has given a CAREER Award to Rosa Krajmalnik-Brown, an assistant professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, one of ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
CAREER awards recognize young engineers and scientists who are demonstrating potential to be research and education leaders in their fields. The award will provide more than $430,000 over five years to help fund research Krajmalnik-Brown is conducting in the Center for Environmental Biotechnology in ASU’s Biodesign Institute.
