Baylor physicist receives DARPA Young Faculty Award

Dr. Howard Lee received the 2017 DARPA Young Faculty Award at a ceremony this month in Washington.

The Office of the Vice Provost for Research congratulates Dr. Howard Lee, who was recently named a 2017 recipient of the DARPA Young Faculty Award (YFA). ┬áLee, an assistant professor of physics in Baylor’s College of Arts & Sciences, was one of just 28 researchers included in the YFA class of 2017.

The YFA program is intended to identify outstanding early-career faculty at U.S. academic institutions and support their research in defined topic areas related to DARPA’s defense-focused mission. ┬áLee was one of two recipients working in the topic area, “Designing Structured Materials for Improved Parametric Processes.”
