Mechanical and nuclear engineering professor awarded second NSF grant
Gurpreet Singh, assistant professor of mechanical and nuclear engineering, has been awarded a National Science Foundation Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems grant to investigate the structure and thermal damage resistance of molecular precursor-derived ceramics for high-power laser radiometry.
The three-year, more than $260,000 award is Singh’s second NSF grant as sole principal investigator in the past two years, the first being state-level. It will allow him to pursue his work on synthesis and thermal property characterization of unique nanostructured ceramics for applications in harsh environments.
