Mechanical engineering alum Milad Siami ’14G ’17 PhD, an assistant professor at Northeastern University, has been awarded a $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation in support of his research on streamlining complex networks.

The project seeks “to make large-scale complex networks simpler by sparse interactions in the right place at the right time.”

Siami received his MS and PhD from Lehigh and was advised by mechanical engineering and mechanics professor Nader Motee, who directs Lehigh’s Distributed Control and Dynamical Systems Laboratory and Autonomous and Intelligent Robotics (AIR) Lab.

Congratulations Milad!
