After graduating from Carolina, Bailey Pons and Hannah Stroot have begun charting their career paths within the energy sector: in workforce development research and in pursuit of a Master of Sciences.
Leila Hashemi-Beni, a NC A&T professor, uses her expertise in geospatial data analytics to develop methods that could increase earthquake resiliency across the State.
While the daily tasks of grant management may seem mundane, the Collaboratory’s newest team member finds that she is motivated by her work because she is engaged with the research.
Since its authorization, the Collaboratory has stewarded approximately $225 million in appropriations from the legislature, investing in over 450 research projects that have the potential to develop innovative, evidence-based solutions that benefit our State.
In addition to raises for state employees and teachers, tax cuts and Medicaid expansion, North Carolina's state budget earmarked a substantial sum to continue the Collaboratory's work funding research in service to the state.
