NSF CAREER grants support ocean energy, microforming, computer planning
Date:2/21/2012

DURHAM, N.H. Three University of New Hampshire faculty members will explore energy from the ocean, manufacturing on a tiny scale, and speedier computer planning, thanks to prestigious Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Awards from the National Science Foundation. The grants, totaling nearly $1.3 million over five years, went to assistant professors Yannis Korkolis and Martin Wosnik of the mechanical engineering department and Wheeler Ruml of the computer science department.

"UNH is fortunate to have three assistant professors recognized by the National Science Foundation this year for their excellence in scholarship and their plans for advancing their research agenda," says Jan Nisbet, UNH senior vice provost for research. "Given the competitiveness of the CAREER awards, UNH should be proud of its success rate and its faculty." Korkolis, Ruml, and Wosnik are among 20 UNH faculty members to receive this award since 1998.

Korkolis, who works in solid mechanics and studies how materials behave and deform when they are used to manufacture anything from a pencil to an airplane, will investigate "microforming" processes. "We're looking at very small pieces of metal, like a needle or a water-cooling channel for a microchip," Korkolis says. "The scientific challenge is that the behavior of these materials when you make them very small is different than at the macroscale, which is more familiar and better understood nowadays."

With this grant, Korkolis will create unique experimental equipment to test the behavior of microtubes. In addition, the grant will support two UNH graduate students to work with Korkolis's collaborators in Germany and South Korea and numerous UNH undergraduates from the Durham and Manchester campuses to work in his lab in Durham.

Wosnik's CAREER award will advance the development of renewable energy from the ocean waves as well as tides and currents which is considered to be one of the more environ
