Sang Lee, assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of New Mexico, has been awarded one of Oak Ridge Associate Universities (ORAU) 2017 Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Awards.

His selection is especially significant because there were 125 applicants from which 37 awardees were chosen. Recipients of this award are faculty who are within the first two years of their tenure-track position.

This is a national award that recognizes the quality and promise of young faculty researchers. The University of New Mexico’s Office of the Vice President for Research matched this award, making the total award amount worth $10,000 for one year (June 1 to May 31).

“This is a great achievement for Dr. Lee and UNM is proud of his commitment to research excellence,” said Vice President for Research López.
