Jeff Reinbolt, assistant professor of mechanical, aerospace, and biomedical engineering, has received a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award.
The CAREER award is the NSF’s most prestigious honor for junior faculty who demonstrate outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations.
Reinbolt’s award includes a $417,000 grant over five years, beginning in 2013. The CAREER project will allow Reinbolt and his graduate students to develop scientific tools and simulations to improve rehabilitation for stroke victims. In addition, Reinbolt’s group will create an app of his findings and also be involved with the Pre-Collegiate Research Scholars as well as the College of Engineering outreach programs for underrepresented groups.
