Presidential Honor

President Barack Obama poses for a group photo with the 2009 recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) in the South Court Auditorium of the White House Dec. 13, 2010. Rensselaer’s Matthew Oehlschlaeger, associate professor of mechanical, aeronautical, and nuclear engineering, was recognized for his U.S. Air Force-funded research on the combustion chemistry of aviation fuels. The Presidential Early Career Awards embody the high priority the Obama Administration places on producing outstanding scientists and engineers to advance the nation’s goals, tackle grand challenges, and contribute to the American economy, the White House said. Oehlschlaeger is in the last row, sixth from the left.
