The American Physical Society recently announced the recipients of the 2018 APS Fellowships. Three Fermilab employees were nominated 2018 APS fellows, a distinction awarded each year to no more than one-half of 1 percent of current APS members by their peers.
Fermilab congratulates the fellows on this prestigious honor.
For sustained, imaginative, extensive, diverse, effective and groundbreaking contributions to the exposure, immersion and engagement of K-12 teachers and students at the frontiers of physics.
Nominated by the Forum on Physics and Society
For the creation and leadership of the Dark Energy Survey Strong Lensing Group, including discovery and confirmation of numerous strong lenses and multiply lensed quasars and their application to new measurements of cosmic dark matter and dark energy.
Nominated by the Division of Astrophysics
For outstanding contributions to the physics of particle beams at the international research facilities, such as the Tevatron and the Large Hadron Collider, for leadership in accelerator science, and for tireless mentorship and supervision of an international summer internship program at Fermilab.
Nominated by the Forum on International Physics
