of multiple disciplines," Murray added; "it has catalyzed many exciting collaborations.

Wood is the winner of multiple awards and honors for his work, including in 2008 being named to the TR35Technology Review magazine's annual list of the world's top 35 innovators under the age of 35and in 2010 receiving the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from President Barack Obama. Wood's group is also dedicated to STEM education, using novel robots to motivate young students to pursue careers in science and engineering.

"I am thrilled to receive this honor and humbled to be in the company of past winners," said Wood. "This award will enable us to pursue novel topics in microfabrication and bio-inspired robotics, along with new application areas for our fabrication techniques outside of robotics. Ultimately this award will also provide invaluable material for our outreach efforts."

The Waterman Award will be presented to Wood and Aaronson (who is also an electrical engineer) at a dinner ceremony held in Washington, D.C., on May 3. Both will also deliver lectures at the NSF.

"Robert and Scott embody the best in young, bold and talented researchers in computing," said NSF Director Subra Suresh. "I have no doubt that these two researchers will continue to have an extraordinary impact on our nation and the world in the years to come."
