SEAS congratulates Dr. Volker Sorger, whom President Trump recently named as a winner of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).

According to the White House, the PECASE is “the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government to outstanding scientists and engineers who are beginning their independent research careers and who show exceptional promise for leadership in science and technology.” Federal agencies can nominate potential winners, who eventually are selected by the president and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

Dr. Sorger and his colleague from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Dr. Chunlei Liang, both received the PECASE.  Learn more about their accomplishments in GW Today.
