John Shadid is one of 28 individuals selected for fellow status this year and only the fifth Sandia scientist to earn the honor, according to a Sandia news release.
“It is an honor to be awarded this distinction from such an exceptional organization as SIAM with such an outstanding collection of current fellows,” Shadid said in a statement.
He also expressed gratitude for the “unique opportunities at Sandia during the early development of parallel computing algorithms and hardware, the strong and insightful leadership of a number of … center directors, and also for the outstanding and long-term research collaborators I have had the good fortune to work with over the years.”
Shadid’s research that earned him the honor included solution methods for multiphysics systems, scalable parallel numerical algorithms and numerical methods for strongly coupled nonlinear partial differential equations, according to a news release.
Shadid will be recognized during SIAM’s annual meeting July 9-13 in Portland, Ore.
