Assistant professors awarded grants for research expenses

The National Science Foundation awarded grants to two Texas State assistant professors this semester for their work as researchers and teachers.

Assistant physics professor Nikoleta Theodoropoulou and assistant computer science professor Apan Qasem were each granted $500,000 NSF CAREER awards by the foundation. The awards will fund their research projects at Texas State over the next five years.

Susan Beauchamp, associate director for the Office of Sponsored Programs, said the foundation’s funds are awarded annually. Future funds may be projected, but Beauchamp said the foundation might feel the impact of the federal fund sequestering situation.
