Dr. Gayme, as Carol Croft Linde Faculty Scholar and assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, studies large-scale networked and spatially distributed systems in applications such as power networks, wind farms, and wall-turbulence.

Using this $500,000, five-year grant, she will create a new paradigm for modeling, analysis, and control of wall-bounded turbulent flows.

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.
