Danielle Mai and Kai-Wen Hsiao, both graduate students in Assistant Professor Charles Schroeder’s research group, each have been named Mavis Future Faculty Fellows.
The Mavis Future Faculty Fellow program in the College of Engineering is to facilitate the training of the next generation of engineering professors. The Fellows program focuses on research, teaching, and mentoring and provides resources to students who want their next step to be into the field of academia.
This is the second year that Mai has received the award; the first year for Hsiao.
The Fellows program is made possible by a gift from Frederic T. and Edith F. Mavis. Dr. Mavis received his bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees in civil engineering from the University of Illinois.
