NSF Career Award for Holly Michael

Mar. 1, 2012 — Holly Michael, assistant professor of geological sciences in UD's College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE), is studying how seawater along the coast mixes with freshwater that flows underground, and she recently received a highly competitive Faculty Early Career Development Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to further her work.

The prestigious awards are given to young faculty members who “exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations,” the foundation’s website states.

“Holly’s research both locally and abroad is enhancing our understanding of the planet’s valuable water resources,” CEOE Dean Nancy Targett said. “Her sharp intellect and commitment to teaching make her an exceptional contributor to her field.”
