IRAD Innovator of the Year

Oct, 2019
Recipient: William W Zhang (662)
Goddard’s Office of the Chief Technologist has named astrophysicist William Zhang as IRAD (Internal Research and Development) Innovator of the Year, an honor the office bestows annually on individuals who demonstrate the best in innovation.

Chosen because of his foresight, perseverance, and leadership, Zhang spent nearly two decades advancing the state-of-the-art in X-ray optics. He and his team ultimately succeeded in their years- long endeavor, creating a new type of optic, made of mono-crystalline silicon, an abundantly available material commonly used to manufacture computer chips.

International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS) Early Career Award

Recipient: Denis Felikson (615)
Citation for the paper by the Selection Panel: "Denis Felikson and his co-authors show that the Péclet number, which is determined from high-resolution bedrock and surface topography data, can explain the competition between inland diffusion and advective resupply of ice in Greenland outlet glaciers with floating tongues. This provides a conceptually simple but powerful understanding of the disparate response of Greenland outlet glaciers to terminus perturbations. It also allows identification of the most vulnerable glaciers to climate forcing so that they can be targeted for further studies."
