I am thrilled to announce that I have received the CAREER award from the National Science Foundation! Here is a description of the award from the NSF website:

CAREER: The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research. NSF encourages submission of CAREER proposals from early-career faculty at all CAREER-eligible organizations and especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities to apply.

This 5-year award will enable me and my research group to pursue our work in applying tools from robust control to the analysis and design of iterative algorithms. Here is a link to the official announcement from the NSF.

I am very grateful to the National Science Foundation for their support and I am looking forward to pursuing this research in the coming years!
