Mar 25, 2013

Jo Daniel, associate professor of civil engineering, has been awarded this year’s Karen Von Damm Leadership Development grant by the UNH ADVANCE program. The grant, designed to help female faculty members assume leadership roles within the university while maintaining their research, honors Von Damm, a world-renowned UNH chemical oceanographer who passed away in 2008.

In addition, eight UNH faculty members received ADVANCE Collaborative Scholarship Advancement awards, designed to enhance collaboration between research and tenure-track faculty in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines. Recipients of the 2013 awards are:

  • Serita Frey, professor of natural resources and the environment, and Alexandra Contosta, post-doctoral researcher in the Earth Systems Research Center of UNH’s Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space (EOS).

  • Meghan Howey, assistant professor of anthropology, and Adrienne Kovach, research assistant professor of natural resources.

  • Feixia Chu, assistant professor of molecular, cellular and biomedical sciences, and Kevin Culligan, research assistant professor in molecular, cellular and biomedical sciences.

  • Linda Kalnejais, assistant professor of Earth sciences, and Joe Salisbury, research assistant professor in the Ocean Process Analysis Laboratory of EOS.

The UNH ADVANCE program is funded by the National Science Foundation to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers, thereby contributing to the development of a more diverse science and engineering workforce.
