Gennady Shvets, staff research physicist in the Plasma Physics Lab, is among 60 young researchers who have received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers this year. The grant, which supports up to five years of research, was made at the White House in April.
Shvets was also honored with Office of Science Early Career Award in Science and Engineering from the U.S. Department of Energy. He was cited for "theoretical and computational investigations of the interaction of ultra-strong pulses with plasmas."
