Biology, Math faculty win prestigious early-career awards
Three researchers received NSF funding in support of their research efforts and commitment to STEM education
The National Science Foundation has awarded Early CAREER grants to three San Francisco State University researchers. Assistant Professors of Biology Rori Rohlfs and Alejandro Vélez Meléndez and Assistant Professor of Mathematics Emily Clader are the latest in a long line of San Francisco State honorees. University faculty have earned 21 awards since 1996, placing SF State second in CAREER awards in the California State University system.
The new grants will support research on frog communication, the evolution of biological traits and the intersection of two math fields. All of this year’s awardees also have ambitious goals to expand research and educational opportunities for students and the local community.
