ITL Mathematican Receives 1998 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers

March 1999

Anthony Kearsley

Anthony Kearsley, a research mathematician in ITL's Mathematics and Computational Sciences Division, received the prestigious 1998 Presidential Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). The presidential Award is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. Government to scientists and engineers beginning their independent careers. The award recognizes Kearsley's work in the development and use of large-scale optimization techniques for the solution of partial differential equations arising in science and engineering. Spanning the areas of problem formulation, algorithm design and analysis, as well as computer software development, the impact of Kearsley's work has been quite remarkable. His contributions have allowed advances in such diverse areas as oil recovery, antenna design, wireless communications, climate modeling, and high-termperature superconductors. Kearsley is the second ITL scientist to be recognized by the PECASE since its inception by President Clinton three years ago.
