White House lauds ONR-funded researchers for early success
Date:1/13/2014

ARLINGTON, Va.Focusing on undersea vehicles that have fish-like sensations, advanced ship design and more, four scientists sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) on Dec. 23 learned they will receive the nation's highest honor for young scientists and engineers.

The researchers have been selected for Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) and will be honored at a ceremony at the White House early this year.

The president's recognition of these individuals reinforces ONR's mission to bring new and improved capabilities to warfighters by supporting ideas from the best and brightest minds in the country, said Dr. Walter F. Jones, ONR's executive director.

"ONR identifies and encourages young talent by staying at the forefront of the most groundbreaking research across a variety of fields," Jones said. "Our work with these up-and-coming researchers ultimately gives our Sailors and Marines the advantage they need to operate in any environment."

The 2013 honorees funded by ONR include: Dr. Kristen Grauman, University of Texas at Austin; Dr. Mona Jarrahi, University of Michigan; Dr. Derek A. Paley, University of Maryland; and Dr. Yongjie Zhang, Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Jeremy Robinson also received the PECASE for his work at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL).

"I hope this recognition inspires other young researchers to continue pursuing new research breakthroughs and discoveries," said Zhang, whose work in geometric modeling could lead to great advances in ship design and analysis.

Paley began working on ONR-funded projects in unmanned systems even before he attended graduate school. With ONR's support, he now is leading a team of biologists and engineers to construct a system for undersea vehicles inspired by sensory organs used by fish to detect movements and vibrations in water. This could allow vehicles to navigate autonomously in areas where traditional sensors
