The American Physical Society (APS) has selected eight LANL scientists as 2011 Fellows. The APS is a nonprofit organization working to advance the knowledge of physics through its research journals, scientific meetings, outreach, advocacy, and international activities.
It represents 48,000 members worldwide, including physicists in academia, national laboratories, and industry. Only half of one percent of APS members can be elected to Fellowship yearly.
And the new APS Fellows are:
• Michael (Misha) Chertkov of Physics of Condensed Matter and Complex Systems: “For fundamental theoretical contributions in statistical hydrodynamics and physics of information and algorithms.”
• Timothy Germann of Physics and Chemistry of Materials: “For fundamental contributions to the application of large-scale molecular dynamics simulations to the study of shock-induced plasticity and phase transitions in metals, as well as applications of these techniques in the development of large-scale agent-based models in computational epidemiology.”
• Fernando Grinstein of Methods and Algorithms: “For outstanding technical leadership in the formalization, development, and validation of novel large-eddy simulation strategies, and for their application to transitional and turbulent flows.”
