The National Science Foundation has awarded CAS assistant professor Gary Hsieh with the Faculty Early Career Development Award (CAREER). Hsieh, who holds a joint-appointment in the Departments of Communication and Telecommunication, Information Studies and Media, as well as an adjunct faculty position in MSU's Department of Computer Science and Engineering, won the award for his teaching work and scholarship in the area of human-centered computing.

According to the NSF web site, the CAREER Award is the "NSF's most prestigious award in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education, and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations."

In addition to his recognition, the award will provide Hsieh approximately $500,000 in research funding over the course five years. The funding will be used to support his research on "Advancing Social Computing with Tailored Motivators," which examines the role of personalized motivators and incentives that encourage users to contribute content in online settings.

The NSF CAREER Award will also allow Dr. Hsieh to hire graduate assistants to join his research team. If you're interested in working with him, or have questions about his research, please contact Dr. Hsieh at garyh@msu.edu.
