ND EPSCoR announces recipients of Collaborative Pilot Seed Grants

Three NDSU professors are recipients of Collaborative Pilot Seed Grant awards through North Dakota Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (ND EPSCoR). The grants total more than $207,400 for a two-year period. The new program provides opportunity for pairs of investigators to explore joint, multidisciplinary research projects that could lead to clusters or focal groups capable of obtaining independent funding.

Jun Kong, assistant professor of computer science at NDSU, and Kang Zhang, professor of computer science at the University of Texas at Dallas, received an award for their project, “Mobile-Friendly Web Browsing.”

Yildirim Bora Suzen, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at NDSU, and Forrest Ames, professor of mechanical engineering at the University of North Dakota, received an award for their project, “Measurements and Predictions of Heat Transfer, Transition and Aerodynamic Loss at Low Reynolds Numbers in High Speed Flows.”

Weiyi Zhang, assistant professor of computer science at NDSU, and Tao Jiang, professor of electronics and information engineering at the Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China, received an award for their project, “ Robust Hybrid Wireless Network Coverage for Rural Public Safety.”

North Dakota EPSCoR is a federally and state funded program designed to help university researchers compete more effectively for federal, regional and private research grants in the sciences, engineering and mathematics. For more information, visit www.ndepscor.nodak.edu.
