Brown engineering professor wins prestigious White House award
Date:7/10/2009

Rashid receiving both of this year's two highest awards for young faculty members: the NSF CAREER Award and the PECASE. He is already making important contributions to teaching and research by the photonics group in the Division of Engineering. With the substantial long-term funding that he now has, he is well positioned to develop an internationally recognized research program," Clifton said.

Zia joins 40 young scientists nationwide nominated by the Department of Defense and chosen as winners in the PECASE competition. (Various federal agencies, including the Department of Defense, nominate 100 candidates.) Each winner receives agency support for five years. Last year, Anastasia Volovich, the Richard and Edna Salomon Assistant Professor of Physics, won the award.

"These extraordinarily gifted young scientists and engineers represent the best in our country," President Obama said. "With their talent, creativity, and dedication, I am confident that they will lead their fields in new breakthroughs and discoveries and help us use science and technology to lift up our nation and our world."

The awards, established by President Clinton in February 1996, are coordinated by the Office of Science and Technology Policy within the Executive Office of the President. Awardees are selected on the basis of two criteria: Pursuit of innovative research at the frontiers of science and technology, and a commitment to community service as demonstrated through scientific leadership, public education, or community outreach. Winning scientists and engineers receive up to a five-year research grant to further their study in support of critical government missions.
