Announcement of 2018 Frederick Howes Scholars
Jeffrey Hittinger, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
A theoretical plasma physicist and a computational biologist are co-winners of the 2018 Frederick A. Howes Scholar in Computational Science Award. The honorees are Seth Davidovits, now a Department of Energy (DOE) Fusion Energy Postdoctoral Fellow at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, and Sarah Middleton, now with pharmaceutical maker GlaxoSmithKline. One or two recent graduates of the DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) are chosen for the award each year in recognition of their research accomplishments and outstanding leadership, integrity and character. Howes, manager of the DOE Applied Mathematical Sciences Program, was an advocate for the fellowship and for computational science. Friends founded the award after his death in 1999 at age 51. A committee of DOE CSGF alumni and friends selects the honorees. The Krell Institute of Ames, Iowa, manages the fellowship and oversees the Howes Award.
