The president has named 57 young government-supported scientists and engineers to receive the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the highest national honor for investigators in the early stages of promising research careers who have also displayed leadership in their fields.
Twelve women are among the honored group of 20 National Science Foundation (NSF)-supported researchers, along with 37 more from other federally-sponsored science and engineering programs, to receive a PECASE. John H. Marburger III, science advisor to the president and director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy is scheduled to present the awards in a 3:00 p.m. ceremony at the White House Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
Among them: Paola Barbara, Georgetown University, is contributing to understanding the interfaces and junctions of superconductors and nanotubes that is leading to potential applications such as biological and chemical sensors.
Daniel Gamelin, University of Washington, Seattle, is conducting advanced studies in new nanoscale, diluted semiconductor materials employing synthetic methods.
