Prestigious Fellowships, Appointments and Memberships Jim R. Stewart named Fellow of the U.S. Association for Computational Mechanics (USACM). Jim R. Stewart was named USACM Fellow “for leadership and service to the USACM community, especially

in the areas of uncertainty quantification and data-driven modeling.” Stewart helps to guide the LDRD portfolio as an Advanced Science & Technology Mission Foundation IA team member.

Paul Kotula elected Fellow of the Microscopy Society of America (MSA). Paul Kotula was elected MSA Fellow “for contributions to the field of statistical analysis of spectral data and dedicated long-term service to the Microscopy Society of America.” Kotula served as a PI on an electronics and photonics LDRD project investigating correlated and comprehensive analytic techniques.

Justin Wagner named Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). Justin Wagner was named AIAA Associate Fellow for embodying the commitment, dedication, and ingenuity that are crucial for devising the best solutions to the complex questions raised in aerospace science. Wagner recently led an LDRD that developed a new capability to shock heat air and other gases to the extreme temperatures and pressures found in conventional explosive events.

Anne Grilled named Fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).

Anne Grillet was named AIChE Fellow for advancing the understanding of battery performance, structure-function relationships in particle suspensions, and the manufacturing and aging of polymer gel systems. Her technical collaborations include leading numerous LDRD projects in Materials Science, Nuclear Deterrence, and Engineering Sciences research areas. An advocate for women in engineering and science, Grillet is also a leader of AIChE’s Women in Chemical Engineering Committee.
