Adam Sefkow, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Rochester and senior scientist at the University’s Laboratory for Laser Energetics, is being recognized with two awards for his research in high-energy density physics and inertial confinement fusion.

He has received a prestigious Early Career Research Program award from the US Department of Energy to develop a hybrid fluid-kinetic multi-physics simulation code to help interpret data acquired from high-energy-density physics and inertial confinement fusion experiments.

Sefkow will also receive the Fusion Power Associates 2017 Excellence in Fusion Engineering Award in recognition of his scientific contributions on a range of topics, including magneto-inertial fusion, short-pulse and long-pulse laser-plasma interaction physics, and intense charged-particle beam transport.

Sefkow, who received his PhD from Princeton University in 2007, was a principal member of the technical staff in the Pulsed Power Sciences Center at Sandia National Laboratories before joining the University of Rochester in 2016.
