Dr. Huanping Huang Grant Recipient of the LSU Provost’s Fund for Innovation in Research

Huanping LSU Geography and Anthropology professor Dr. Huanping Huang is a grant recipient of the LSU Provost’s Fund for Innovation in Research.

In January 2023, LSU announced its largest investment in seed funding for faculty research in university history. The Provost’s Fund for Innovation in Research, managed through the Office of Research & Economic Development, awarded $1.1 million to 33 projects in support of strategic priorities for the university and for Louisiana as well as LSU’s Scholarship First Agenda. The strength of the Scholarship First Agenda lies not only in how LSU can drive research and innovation in agriculture, biomedicine, coast, defense and energy, but combine these areas in interesting ways to solve pressing problems around the globe.

Dr. Huang's research focused on characterizing how the wind speed decays of land falling hurricanes have evolved over time to help with disaster preparedness and planning.
