Awards

  • DOE/NNSA Defense Programs "Exceptional" Award of Excellence 2015 (LANL team)
  • LANL Individual Distinguished Performance Award (2014) (received Sept. 2015)

LANL's Distinguished Performance Award recipients receive by performing an outstanding, unique contribution that had a positive impact on the Lab's programmatic efforts or status in the scientific community. They demonstrate an unusual creativity or dedication of the individual or team. They also performance substantially beyond what normally would be expected.
