Members of The University of Alabama faculty were honored for their research and creative contributions at Faculty Research Day.
Eight members of the UA faculty, including mechanical engineering associate professor Zheng O’Neill, were recognized as recipients of the President’s Faculty Research Award during a ceremony on the UA campus in April.
Sponsored by the offices of the President and Vice President for Research and Economic Development, the award goes to outstanding faculty researchers from across UA’s colleges and schools.
Faculty Research Day highlights and celebrates excellence in research, creativity and scholarship by bringing together faculty from across campus. The event is also intended to increase awareness and generate enthusiasm for scholarship among faculty as the University advances its research enterprise and its impact.
