US President Obama Selects 4 Indian-American Scientists for Presidential Awards

US President Obama Selects 4 Indian-American Scientists for Presidential Awards
11 January 2017 Current Affairs: Four Indian-American scientists have been chosen among 102 researchers who will receive the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) the highest honour given by the US government to science and engineering professionals. 

Pankaj Lal from Montclair State University ( Department of Agriculture); Kaushik Chowdhury from Northeastern University (Department of Defense), Manish Arora, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (Department of Health and Human Services) and Aradhna Tripati, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) (National Science Foundation). 

Lal, who earned his Master's from Delhi School of Economics, is an associate professor in the department of earth and environmental studies at Montclair. 

Undertaking interdisciplinary research that explores interconnections among society and the environment, he has been working on environmental economics and economic geography, human dimensions of ecosystem management, natural resource conservation and policy and climate change. 

Chowdhury, who received his PhD from the Georgia Institute of Technology, directs the Next Generation Networks and Systems (GENESYS) Lab. He is the winner of the "NSF CAREER" award in 2015 and the Office of Naval Research Director of Research Early Career Award in 2016. 

An environmental epidemiologist and exposure biologist, Arora's research focuses on effects of prenatal and early childhood chemical exposures on life-long health trajectories. 

He is known for his work on biomarkers that utilise human deciduous and permanent teeth to reconstruct the timing of exposure to various harmful chemicals and essential nutrients. 

At UCLA, Tripati's lab uses the chemistry of natural compounds as well as models as tools to understand how the Earth works to understand climate change, the oceans, and the transfer of carbon between the biosphere, atmosphere and oceans. 

The awards, established by President Bill Clinton in 1996, are coordinated by the Office of Science and Technology Policy within the Executive Office of the US president. 

Awardees are selected for their pursuit of innovative research at the frontiers of science and technology and their commitment to community service as demonstrated through scientific leadership, public education or community outreach.
