Congratulations to mechanical engineering senior Erez Krimsky on being awarded a National Science Foundation graduate research fellowship!
Krimsky will graduate from Johns Hopkins University having done research at the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute, the United States Army Research Lab, and the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab. His research at JHU has centered on understanding how fractures form and propagate in ceramic armor material, utilizing resources found within the Center for Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments. In the fall he will begin a PhD in mechanical engineering with a focus in robotics.
This NSF program, the oldest of its kind in the country, recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who pursue research-based post-baccalaureate degrees at accredited institutions. Fellows receive three years of monetary support during a five-year fellowship period, and have international research and professional development opportunities.
