The American Association for the Advancement of Science has elected Fermilab scientist Vladimir Shiltsev as a 2019 AAAS fellow, a lifetime distinction.
Shiltsev, a Distinguished Scientist at Fermilab, was one of 443 AAAS members nominated this year as fellows by their peers.
AAAS recognized him for “contributions to accelerator science and technology, particularly in the conception and application of electron lenses, and for exemplary community service.”
Shiltsev joined Fermilab in 1996 as a Wilson fellow. He was head of the Fermilab Tevatron Department from 2001-06 and director of the Fermilab Accelerator Physics Center from 2007-18. He is a fellow of the the American Physical Society and recipient of the 2004 Accelerator Prize from the European Physical Society, the 2015 APS Robert H. Siemann Award, the 2016 George Gamow Award, the 2018 APS Outstanding Referee Award and the 2019 International Accelerator Nishikawa Prize.
