Popular Science announces second annual 'Brilliant 10:' the country's top young scientists

New York, NY, August 5, 2003-- Popular Science magazine names its second annual "Brilliant 10" today, a list of the young scientists in the United States who are doing extraordinary work. The article appears in the September issue. The "Brilliant 10," which will hit newsstands on August 12, is a celebration of an elite group of scientists who are shaking up their fields and whose work will touch all facets of life. This group is just a sliver of the larger community of researchers doing the work that will reveal--and, by revealing, change--our world.

"Science is made dramatic and relevant by the incredible people behind it," said Scott Mowbray, Editor-in-Chief, of Popular Science. "Our second annual list shines the spotlight on a group of men and women, while watched and admired by colleagues, is largely unknown to the public. These are the researchers who have the potential to redefine the world in which we live. And it's an incredibly diverse group, illustrating the global nature of advanced scientific research done in the United States."

The PopSci "Brilliant 10," in alphabetical order, are:

  • Eric Demaine, 22, Massachusetts Insititute of Technology, for his work in the field of computational origami. At age 14 as a grad student, Delmaine was confronting a thorny problem: which shapes can be made simply by folding a piece of paper, as many times as you like, then snipping off a corner and unfolding it. He found the answer and helped launch computational origami, a hybrid discipline--part computer science, part mathematics--that explores complex geometry concepts inspired by the Japanese art of paper folding. This field has helped engineers figure out how to unfold a telescope lens in outer space without damaging it, among other things.

  • Tejal Desai, 31, Boston University, for her work in the field of tissue engineering. For her PhD project, Desai built an implantable device that eliminates the daily insulin injections
