“ONR has always had an excellent ability to identify and foster young talent by keeping current with the most innovative research being done in various fields,” said Dr. Michael Kassner , ONR director of research. “Working with top scientists and engineers ensures that we get the most advanced capabilities to our Sailors and Marines.”

Honorees funded by ONR include: David M. Blei, Princeton University; Alejandro L. Briseno, University of Massachusetts Amherst; Lee R. Cambrea, Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division Research and Intelligence Department; Chiara Daraio, California Institute of Technology; Keith Edward Knipling, Naval Research Laboratory; and Ao Tang, Cornell University received the PECASE for outstanding contributions to their respective fields.

This year, a total of 96 researchers earned PECASE awards through their work for various government agencies, including the Department of Defense, Department of Energy, NASA and National Science Foundation.
