Dr. Carolyn Kuranz Wins 2017 LAD Early Career Award
Posted: January 15, 2017
Climate & Space research scientist Dr. Carlyn Kuranz has been selected as the winner of the American Astronomical Society's 2017 Laboratory Astrophysics Division (LAD) Early Career Award. The award is given annually to an early career scientist who has made contributions of especially great impact and fundamental significance.
Dr. Kuranz's area of research involves hydrodynamic instability and radiation hydrodynamics experiments at high-energy-density physics facilities. Her research is relevant to astrophysical systems, such as, the hydrodynamics instabilities that may develop in core-collapse supernovae or a radiative shocks in a supernova remnants. She is a member of the Executive Committee of the Division of Plasma Physics in the American Physical Society and is the founding chair of the Jupiter Laser Facility User Group at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. In 2016, she was named Project Director for the Center for Laser Experimental Astrophysical Research.
