Dr. Sharda at desk with computer models.

Kansas State University engineer Vaishali Sharda received a prestigious NSF CAREER award this month to help prepare Kansas farmers for future climates. To learn more, see this K-State news story and video.

In addition, K-State recently announced Dr. Sharda’s promotion to Associate Professor with tenure.

As a collaborator on the Kansas NSF EPSCoR ARISE project, Dr. Sharda contributes to Theme 3 research, which seeks to understand the real-world relationships between hazards and infrastructure systems using case studies to explore how different decision levers influence social equity in Kansas communities. 

We are thrilled to see one of our faculty collaborators achieve two major milestones in the same month. Congratulations Dr. Sharda!
