Maryland Seat Grant: Improving Prediction and
Visualization of Coastal Inundation on the EasternShore of Maryland
Rapid-Response Observations and Ocean Ensemble Optimization to
Improve Storm Intensity Forecasts in the Northeast U.S.
2012: Salisbury University Faculty
Mini-Grant with Dr. Harel Barzilai. The title of the research
project is "Partnering with
Maryland Schools to Pilot Concept-based Online Math Tutorials"
2009-2010: NSF funded project - Bridges for
SUCCESS Curriculum Coordination Project. The objectives of the
project is to increase the total number of graduates in selected
STEM disciplines by 75% within five years by increasing the
number of chemistry, physics, mathematics, and computer science,
and new earth science graduates.
2002: Welcome Fellowship
