Updated 8:20 a.m. Feb. 25: We inadvertently omitted two of our NSF CAREER award recipients, Nguyen Tran and Laura Starkston, and have now added them.
Twelve faculty members of the University of California, Davis, are the recipients of 2021 CAREER grants, the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards for early career faculty.
Given by the NSF’s Faculty Early Career Development Program, the grants can run up to five years and typically include both research and educational components.
Here are the UC Davis recipients, all assistant professors, and their CAREER projects. Click on any of the boxes to learn more about each recipient and their research.
