Garnier Receives Excellence in Fusion Engineering Award

Darren Garnier, an APAM Research Scientist at MIT, was named the recipient of the 2009 Excellence in Fusion Engineering Award.

In selecting Dr. Garnier, the Fusion Power Associates (FPA) Board notes the contributions and leadership Dr. Garnier has provided for the design, fabrication and operation of the Levitated Dipole Experiment (a joint Columbia-MIT project located at MIT) and his contributions to the diagnostics and control systems for that experiment.

This award was established in 1987 in memory of MIT Professor David J. Rose to recognize persons in the relatively early part of their careers who have shown both technical accomplishment and potential to become exceptionally influential leaders in the fusion field.

The FBA Board of Directors will present the award to Dr. Garnier at the Fusion Power Associates Thirty-year Anniversary Meeting and Symposium, December 2-3, in Washington, DC.
