Sandia National Laboratories researcher Jacqueline Chen has been elected as a fellow of the American Physical Society.
This honor is afforded each year to no more than 0.5 percent of the members of the society.
Chen was honored “for fundamental insights into turbulence-chemistry interactions revealed through massively parallel direct numerical simulations.”
“Being named a fellow of the American Physical Society is a great honor,” said Chen. “This recognition represents my commitment to understanding computational simulation of turbulent reacting flows with complex chemistry.”
Chen, who has spent her entire career working at Sandia’s world-renowned Combustion Research Facility, conducts research on the understanding of the complex interactions of fluid flow and chemistry in flames. Her research has involved some of the largest computational simulations ever performed using some of the world’s largest supercomputers.
