Interactive workshop on crafting a competitive NSF STEM education proposal.
Abby DUPLICATE Ilumoka
Dr. Abiodun (Abby) Ilumoka currently serves as program director for engineering education in the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) at NSF. She is lead program director for the DUE engineering team and co-lead for the Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) program.
Prior to joining NSF, Dr. Ilumoka received the Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Chemistry from the University of Aston in Birmingham, England in 1976, the Master’s degree in Electronics from the University of Southampton, England in 1978 and the Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Imperial College London, England in 1982.She joined the faculty at the College of Engineering, University of Hartford in Connecticut where she rose to rank of full professor of electrical and computer engineering in 2003. Her research interests include microelectronic circuit optimization and complex adaptive systems design.
At NSF, Dr. Ilumoka’s research focus is to use her experience and background in engineering research and engineering education to help inform the generation of efficient predictive models for elements of the K-16 STEM education enterprise.
R. Steven (Steve) Turley is a temporary program director for physics education in the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) at the National Science Foundation. Dr. Turley is involved in the Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE), the Robert Noyce Scholarship, the IUSE: Hispanic Serving Institutions (IUSE:HSI), and Scholarship in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) programs.
Dr. Turley received a B.S. in physics from Brigham Young University in 1978. He did his graduate work at M.I.T. in Physics where he received a Ph.D. in physics where he was supported by a Howard Hughes Fellowship. During and following his education, Dr. Turley worked at Hughes Aircraft Company in their Missile Systems Division and later at Hughes Research Labs.
Dr. Turley's permanent institution is Brigham Young University (BYU) where he is a Professor of Physics. At BYU he has also been an Associate Dean and Department Chair. Before coming to NSF, Prof. Turley was on the Leadership Team of the national Physics New Faculty Workshop and the Treasurer of the American Association of Physics Teachers.
Dr. Turley's current research interests are in STEM faculty development, extreme ultraviolet optics, and computational electromagnetics. Previous research projects have been in the areas of nonlinear optics, atomic physics, laser cooling, plasma diagnostics, nuclear physics, and planetary physics. He is a Fellow of the American Association of Physics Teachers.
Julie P. Martin is the program director for Engineering Education in the Engineering Education and Centers Division (Engineering Directorate) at the National Science Foundation. She manages the Research in the Formation of Engineers (RFE), the Research Initiation in the Formation of Engineers (RIEF), the engineering education CAREER, and the Revolutionizing Engineering and Computer Science Departments (RED) programs. Julie also serves on inter-and intra-agency working groups on topics related to STEM education. Julie is on loan to NSF from Clemson University’s Department of Engineering Education, where she is an associate professor.
