CETA's Eoin King has been awarded the Greenberg Junior Faculty Grant

Faculty members Eoin King of the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) and Lisa Zawilinski and Toko Oshio of the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) have been awarded Greenberg Junior Faculty Grants.

Eoin King, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, will compare and analyze pedestrian exposure to noise and air pollution within an urban setting for two cases: i) pedestrians walking on a sidewalk at street level and ii) pedestrians walking on an elevated walkway (known as the “High Line”). Along with course release time, the grant will provide funding for travel and equipment related to this project.

Lisa Zawilinski, assistant professor of elementary education, along with Toko Oshio, assistant professor of early childhood education, will examine the effects of integrating technology (iPads and literacy apps) within literacy instruction on kindergarten and first graders’ literacy achievement. Along with course release time, the grant will provide funding for student assistants, travel and other grant-related expenses.

The Greenberg Junior Faculty Grants are internal grant awards intended to promote high-quality scholarship by faculty members who are just beginning their careers. These grants are made possible by a generous gift from Arnold and Beverly Greenberg.
