A civil engineering professor who develops tools that improve infrastructure systems’ reliability and recovery from disasters like hurricanes and floods has received the inaugural Littlejohn Dean Faculty Fellowship.

Vanderbilt Engineering School Dean Philippe Fauchet announced Jan. 13 that Hiba Baroud, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, has received the new endowed fellowship for junior faculty members.

“This fellowship enables us to recognize our bright young engineering faculty members at the assistant professor level, something impossible for us to do in such an impactful way until today. We are grateful to the Littlejohn family for their support in helping us create opportunities like this for our faculty,” Fauchet said at a reception for Baroud.
