Annick Pouquet selected APS Fellow
Annick Pouquet, associate director of NCAR's new Earth and Sun Systems Laboratory, has been selected as a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) for her outstanding contributions to physics. Fellowship in the APS is
limited to no more than 0.5% of the membership.
"I am very pleased and honored by this distinction," Annick says. "At first I felt very surprised because it came out of the blue."
Annick's peers elected her based on "her many contributions to the development and application of statistical methods and numerical simulations in turbulent hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic flows for viscous, inviscid, and compressible fluids."
Formerly the director of NCAR's Geophysical Turbulence Program, Annick came to NCAR from the Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur in Nice, France, where she was director of the Cassini Laboratory. Her research focuses on the fundamental nature of turbulent flows, with an emphasis on the dynamics of interactions between velocity and magnetic fields in the solar interior, solar corona, interstellar medium, and Earth's interior.
Annick will receive a fellowship certificate at the APS's Division of Fluid Dynamics annual meeting on November 21-23 in Seattle.
