Four Arts, Sciences & Engineering faculty members have been chosen as this year’s Wilmot Assistant Professors. The two-year awards recognize “some of the most promising young men and women in the early stages of their academic careers.” They are:

  • Hussein Aluie of mechanical engineering, an expert on computational fluid dynamics as applied at scales ranging from many kilometers to mere micrometers — from ocean currents to inertial confinement fusion.
  • Margarita Guillory of religion, who studies black spiritualists and their churches in America.
  • Yena Park of economics, whose research is mainly concerned with the interaction of public insurance, such as federal disability insurance programs, and the insurance provided through private markets.
  • Steven Piantadosi of brain and cognitive sciences, who combines mathematics, computer science, theory, and experimental psychology to understand the computational mechanisms that support children’s acquisition of cognitive systems such as number and language.
