Prof. Hanson wins JFRASE award

Aug. 26, 2021

Prof. Jack Hanson has been awarded the prestigious 2021 Junior Faculty Research Award in Science and Engineering (JFRASE). The JFRASE is funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and comes with a $50,000 fellowship.

A panel of reviewers chose Dr. Hanson's project for this highly selective award because they were convinced of its potential to make a significant contribution to society, to CUNY, and to his field. Dr. Hanson is joining a select group of 22 CUNY faculty who have won this award since 2012.
