James, Schuler receive PECASE honor
Assistant professors Ashley James (aerospace engineering and mechanics) and William Schuler (computer science and engineering) received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the nation’s highest honor for professionals beginning their independent research and education careers. They are among 20 young scientists and engineers who received this award this year from the National Science Foundation, one of nine federal departments and agencies that annually nominate individuals for the prestigious award.
