Closing the Innovation Readiness Gap

I have been awarded $200,000 in the form of a UW Innovation Education Award, “Closing the Innovation Readiness Gap.”

My team of four researchers is creating a cross-disciplinary, Web-based program that will provide mentoring and a support network to help students across departments gain entrepreneurial –thinking skills and increase their problem-solving skills. My teammates include Payman Arabshahi, associate professor of electrical engineering and research scientist at the UW Applied Physics Laboratory; Vipin Kumar, associate professor of mechanical engineering; and Vikram Jandhyala, vice provost for innovation at UW CoMotion and professor of electrical engineering.

“These are some of the most creative thinkers in our midst and are at the heart of the UW’s innovation ecosystem,” said Provost Ana Mari Cauce. “We congratulate them for fueling the innovative research and education that is working toward a world of good.”

The Innovation Awards will encourage, nurture, bring together, and celebrate creative thinkers in our midst, while increasing public awareness of academic innovation.
