Cornell scientists Salman Avestimehr, David Erickson, John C. March and Kyle Shen are recipients of this year's Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) -- the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on early-career science and engineering professionals. Annually, 16 federal departments and agencies unite to nominate the scientists, of which there are 94 this year, who show "the greatest promise for assuring America's pre-eminence in science and engineering and contributing to the awarding agencies' missions."
