Nasrin Alamdari, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, was recently selected to attend the American Society for Engineering Education DELTA Junior Faculty Institute.
Alamdari’s research focuses on natural and nature-based features for mitigating short- and long-term impacts of sea level rise in coastal waters, which is important in a peninsular state like Florida.
“Dr. Alamdari is a great fit for the DELTA Junior Faculty Institute,” said Professor Lisa Spainhour, chair of the department of civil and environmental engineering. “I’m excited to see her broaden both her skillset and network through participation in the program.”
The institutes develop engineering and engineering technology faculty and administrators to transform engineering education, research and community engagement.
Alamdari integrates her teaching, research and service through broad-ranging activities, such as including undergraduates on her research team. She develops K-12 educational materials and incorporates community stakeholders (state agencies, NPOs and community leaders) in her proposals.
A program of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), the DELTA Junior Faculty Institute prepares early-stage faculty members to integrate their scholarship, teaching and service to advance their careers in alignment with personal goals and institutional and disciplinary expectations.
