Moon receives National Science Foundation CAREER Award

Scientists often use things in nature as a model to make new things, such as using birds as models for airplanes. One WUSTL engineer is using a basic cell as a model to make genetically engineered bacteria that would produce biofuel or pharmaceuticals. Tae Seok Moon, PhD, has received a prestigious Faculty Early Career Development Award from the National Science Foundation for his project, “Engineering Biological Robustness through Synthetic Control.”

WUSTL professor Weinberger receives NSF CAREER award

Kilian Q. Weinberger, assistant professor of computer science & engineering in the School of Engineering & Applied Science, has won a prestigious Faculty Early Career Development Award (CAREER award) from the National Science Foundation. Weinberger’s CAREER project, “New Directions for Metric Learning,” seeks to solve one of the fundamental problems of machine learning: how to compare individual texts, images or sounds.
