Four Sandia researchers win Presidential Early Career Award

Sandia Nationals Labs researchers Salvatore Campione, Matthew Gomez, Paul Schmit and Irina Tezaur have received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers for 2019.

President Donald Trump recently announced the awards as the U.S. government’s most prestigious for early career scientist and engineers.

PECASE includes $250,000 as research support over a five-year period and is provided to scientists and engineers beginning their careers who show exceptional promise for leadership in science and technology. A ceremony honoring recipients was held July 25 in Washington, D.C.

Campione, from Catania, Italy, is an electromagnetic analyst involved in national security projects that include analysis and modeling for lightning, electromagnetic pulse effects and radiation, as well as fundamental research and design in metamaterials and nanophotonics.

Gomez, from Hillsborough, N.J., is an experimental high energy density physicist who has progressed in fusion experiments that rely on a combination of electricity, lasers and magnetism.

Schmit, from Glendale, Ariz., has used pulsed power techniques at Sandia accelerator facilities to advance inertial confinement fusion research through theory, simulation, and design and analysis of experiments.

Tezaur, from West Bloomfield, Mich., has focused on modeling and simulation of complex multi-scale and multi-physics problems using high-performance computing impacting a variety of Sandia and Department of Energy mission areas.
