Three faculty fellows are working in the office of the vice chancellor of research and graduate studies under the leadership of Dr. Costas Tsatsoulis. The fellows and their roles are:

Dr. Xiaoming He, associate professor of mathematics and statistics

He is the newest faculty fellow in the office. He began his appointment on July 1. He will conduct five-year university research center reviews and promote interdisciplinary research collaborations.

“In the first year of my position, I will work with the research centers and Costas for the five-year review procedure,” He said. “We will also try to find several relatively big federal funding opportunities to form interdisciplinary teams to write proposals, which will also provide more opportunities for our faculty members to know more about each other and work more with each other.”

Dr. Yue-wern Huang, professor of toxicology and nanobiotechnology

Huang is a professor of biological sciences. His research team focuses on basic and applied biomedical research, as well as environmental toxicology. Huang has published more than 70 peer-reviewed publications. He was a keynote speaker at two conferences and he has delivered more than 40 invited speeches in institutes such as EPA, New York University, Texas A&M University, Academia Sinica, National Taiwan University, and Wuhan University.

Huang’s research has been funded by NSF, NIH, EPA, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, St. Louis Zoo, Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Missouri Department of Conservation, and other state and federal agencies. He is an editor of three peer-reviewed journals and serves as an ad hoc member of the EPA Toxic Substance Control Act Science Advisory Committee on Chemicals. He received S&T Outstanding Teaching Commendation in 2020, Faculty Research Award in 2010 and Faculty Excellence Award in 2008. He leads S&T’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee and Institutional Biosafety Committee.

“It has been a great pleasure to work with faculty members to recruit high quality graduate students, facilitate interdisciplinary research, as well as mentor junior faculty members for grant proposal writing,” Huang said.

Dr. Nancy Stone, professor of psychological science

Stone began working as a faculty fellow in 2018. She assisted in the revision and development of policies and procedures for centers and consortia, as well as the centers’ five-year review process. In addition, she coordinated and developed several workshops for students and faculty such as the NSF GRFP annual workshop and Working with Industry Workshop. Her activities identify and address faculty support needs.
