UT Engineering faculty receive almost $1.4 million in NSF CAREER awards
Date:3/2/2012

Four faculty members from the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have been selected to receive Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) awards totaling nearly $1.4 million from the National Science Foundation.

The awards are the most prestigious offered by the foundation's CAREER Program, and provide up to five years of funding to junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations.

The four faculty members from the Cockrell School who received awards are:

Ying Xu, assistant professor in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering, was awarded for her project "Emission and Transport of Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs) in Indoor Environments." PBDEs are used extensively in the U.S. as flame retardants in consumer products and building materials. The goal of Xu's research is to understand the fundamental mechanisms governing emission and transport of PBDEs.

Miryung Kim, an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was awarded for her work on "Analysis and Automation of Systematic Software Modifications." Kim's research focuses on software engineering, specifically on software evolution. Her research group, Software Evolution and Analysis Laboratory (SEAL), develops innovative program analysis algorithms and software development tools to make it easier to develop and maintain large-scale software systems. SEAL's mission is to improve programmer productivity and program correctness. Kim studies software development practices through user studies with professional software engineers and through rigorous empirical analysis of open source project data.
