Prof. Klamkin has received the DARPA Young Faculty Award (YFA). The objective of the DARPA YFA program is to identify and engage rising research stars at U.S. academic institutions and introduce them to Department of Defense needs as well as DARPA’s program development process. The YFA program provides funding, mentoring and industry and DoD contacts to awardees early in their careers so they may develop their research ideas in the context of national security needs.
