Josiah Hester Receives NSF CAREER Award

Josiah Hester has received a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) award, the most prestigious early-career honor from that institution.  Hester’s award will support his work developing battery-free, embedded computing and sensory systems, which draw power from ambient light, motion, and heat.  As these power sources are inherently less predictable than traditional batteries or fuel sources, the project places a strong emphasis on developing the software, components, and even programming languages that will allow each device to run optimally.  As a part of the CAREER Award, Hester will work with public schools and non-profits to foster greater interest and engagement with computing among Native Hawaiian students.
