Four faculty members at Stony Brook University, including Emre Salman of Sound Beach, were selected to receive the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) program award.
The award, which includes a substantial grant to support research over a five-year period, is given to promising young faculty members who exemplify the role of teacher-scholar through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of both education and research.
Salman earned $453,809 for the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering.
“Stony Brook is deeply committed to the STEM disciplines and these four scholars exemplify the depth and breadth of the amazing research, education and innovation taking place here,” said Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD, President, Stony Brook University.
An assistant professor in his department and the Director of the Nanoscale Circuits and Systems (NanoCAS) Laboratory at Stony Brook University, Salman received the award for his research on Leveraging Three-Dimensional Integration Technology for Highly Heterogeneous Systems-on-Chip.
“This is a highly encouraging acknowledgement of our research at the NanoCAS Laboratory,” Salman said. “It will enable us not only to pursue our innovative research ideas, but also to integrate these activities with educational initiatives at the undergraduate and graduate levels.”
Professor Salman has published more than 30 peer-reviewed articles and holds two US patents. He is also the leading author of an extensive reference book (published by McGraw-Hill) on integrated circuit design.
