Mechanical engineering professors receive National Science Foundation CAREER awards

By Josh Perry, Editor


According to reports from the University of Oklahoma (Norman, Okla.) and from the University of Binghamton (N.Y.), the National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Awards have been announced and a pair of mechanical engineering professors have been honored.

University of Oklahoma professor Jivtesh Garg received the NSF Early Career Development Program Award for research into advanced composite materials for thermal management and energy conversion. He is a professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering in the Gallogly College of Engineering and studies materials that more efficiently dissipate heat.


Dr. Garg has been a professor at OU since 2014 and has been published in several of the industry’s top journals. In addition to his research, Dr. Garg has also expanded a summer camp program for high school students.


“Junior Science, Engineering Excellency and Diversity Program, or JrSEED, engages students in hands-on activities related to thermoelectricity, fuel cells, shape memory polymers and wind energy,” the report noted. “Students also get to learn from industry professionals and participate in competitions.”


University of Binghamton assistant professor Scott Schiffres received an NSF CAREER Award to continue his study of intermetallic alloys that cool quicker than current materials. His work will be supported by a five-year, $500,000 award from the NSF.


His research has applications in additive manufacturing and one of the ideas that he proposed is 3-D printing a heat sink directly onto a chip. He plans on creating a variety of intermetallic and silicide materials for the study.
