Albert has participated in an international collaboration with the German Aerospace Center since the summer of 2012 as part of our National Science Foundation OISE Catalyzing new international collaborations grant. His participation in the summer research experience in Cologne Germany set the foundation for a successful research relationship with joint publication outcomes. The Fulbright fellowship will provide Albert the opportunity to continue to forge this collaboration for his doctoral research.
