Paley Wins NSF CAREER Award


Clark School aerospace engineering assistant professor Derek Paley has won a $400,000 National Science Foundation Early Faculty Career (CAREER) Award for work that will study information transmission in biological groups (like schools of fish) and apply the same principles to design motion coordination strategies for autonomous vehicles.

"Research in biologically inspired coordination of unmanned systems has applications in the inspection of aging civil infrastructure, improved forecasts of hurricane intensity, and environmental monitoring of climate variability," said Paley.

As part of this research, Paley will work with Clark School K-12 outreach programs and use his research to interest K-12 students in science and engineering.
