White House announces that 2 UCSB faculty members will receive US presidential science awards
Date:9/26/2011

(Santa Barbara, Calif.) President Obama today named two UC Santa Barbara faculty members as recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). The award is the highest honor the nation can bestow on a scientist or engineer at the beginning of his or her career.

Benjamin Mazin, assistant professor in the Department of Physics, and Sumita Pennathur, assistant professor in the department of mechanical engineering, are among 94 individuals across the country to receive the early career awards, which recognize recipients' exceptional potential for leadership at the frontiers of scientific knowledge, and their commitment to community service, as demonstrated through scientific leadership, education, or community outreach.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on October 14.

"Our campus shares great pride in this prestigious recognition and in the innovative research of Assistant Professors Mazin and Pennathur," said UCSB Chancellor Henry T. Yang. "We look forward with anticipation to the exciting developments in their respective research programs in microwave kinetic inductance detectors and in nanofluidic transport and devices, and we wish them a joyous celebration at the White House."

Mazin was cited for outstanding contributions to the development of ultra-sensitive low-temperature detector arrays that provide energy resolution and arrival timing for photons from X-rays to the near-infrared.

Pennathur was recognized for outstanding research achievements in the fields of nanotechnology and mechanical engineering, which have provided new insights in the areas of nanofluidics and interfacial science, and have resulted in the development of novel theoretical and experimental platforms that enable breakthrough discoveries relating to protein transport, adsorption, and kinetics.

"With the PECASE awards the federal government recognizes the most outstandin
