John Edwards, associate program director for inertial confinement fusion and high energy density science and the ICF program leader at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, has received the Leadership Award from Fusion Power Associates Board of Directors.
Edwards was recognized for several scientific contributions to inertial confinement fusion and high energy density plasma physics, as well as for his guidance in research efforts. Of particular note was his leadership "of the scientific program on the National Ignition Facility (NIF) for both high energy density physics and for the eventual achievement of ignition leading toward a commercial fusion power source."
