On Oct. 11, the American Physical Society announced the recipients of the 2016 APS Fellowships. Three Fermilab scientists were named 2016 APS fellows, a distinction awarded each year to no more than one-half of 1 percent of current APS members by their peers.
Giorgio Apollinari was named a fellow by the Forum on International Physics. Patrick Fox and Peter Shanahan were named fellows to the Division of Particles and Fields.
These Fermilab users were also named fellows: Ken Bloom, Christine Davies, Aaron Dominguez, Karol Lang, Miguel Mostafa, Scott Oser, Hiranya Peiris, Sunil Somalwar, Daniel Whiteson.
These Fermilab international collaborators were named fellows: Sergio Bertolucci, Günther Dissertori.
Fermilab scientist Dmitri Denisov coordinates Fermilab fellowship nominations. Please contact him if you’d like to nominate a member of the Fermilab community for an APS Fellowship.
Fermilab heartily congratulates the fellows on this prestigious honor.
For his successful efforts in organizing international technical collaborations on development and construction of elements for detectors and accelerators and for his leadership in sharing technologies and learned lessons across the field of high-energy physics throughout the world.
For phenomenological and theoretical developments in physics beyond the Standard Model, particularly in connecting searches at colliders with those at dark matter detection experiments.
For ongoing leadership in neutrino oscillation experiments and leadership of the international NOvA collaboration.
