NSF announced Dr. Elwany as recipient of the 2019 NSF Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) Award. The CAREER program is the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.
Dr. Elwany’s proposal is entitled (CAREER: The Science of Producing Metallic Parts with Location-Specific Properties Using Additive Manufacturing). Through this award, his team will conduct fundamental research to enable the control of local material properties through locally varying microstructure. This has the potential to realize complex functionalities within monolithic structures, a capability that has not yet been fully realized in metal additive processes.
