APS Fellows Nominated by DCOMP  

Filter by Year:


Benedict, Lorin X. [2018]
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Citation: For the development of first-principles approaches that include electron-hole interaction effects in the prediction of optical absorption in materials, the properties of matter under extreme environments, and the prediction of carbon nanotube properties.


Chandrasekharan, Shailesh [2018]
Duke University
Citation: For developing new ideas to solve sign problems in strongly correlated massless Dirac fermion systems, and for constructing new fermion Monte Carlo algorithms that have helped to accurately study fermionic quantum critical behavior in 2+1 dimensions and to discover exotic quantum critical points.


Elder, Ken [2018]
Oakland University
Citation: For groundbreaking contributions to the field of computational materials physics, his insights into growth phenomena, moving boundary and interface problems, pattern formation and the development of phase field crystal modeling.


Habib, Salman [2018]
Argonne National Laboratory
Citation: For outstanding contributions and leadership in the study of quantum-to-classical transitions in nonlinear dynamical systems and the development of the Hybrid/Hardware Accelerated Cosmology Code providing the most detailed simulations of the universe using the world's most advanced supercomputers.


Turchi, Patrice E.A. [2018]
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Citation: For outstanding contributions in developing electronic structure methods with application to thermodynamic stability, order-disorder phenomena, and phase transformations for a broad class of materials, and for impact in the areas of computational thermodynamics and alloy design.


Zhang, Ruiqin [2018]
City University of Hong Kong
Citation: For path-breaking contributions to the development of quantum-mechanical many-body methods as well as modeling and simulation of large electronic systems such as those with nanosurfaces, promoting their applications in the fields of environment, energy, biology and medicine.
