(Santa Barbara, Calif.) — UC Santa Barbara physicist Jean Carlson has been named a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). Recognized for “exceptional contribution to the physics enterprise in physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, and significant contributions to physics education.” She joins 154 newly minted fellows across the country who have been selected for the honor this year.

“I’m happy to be recognized in this way,” said Carlson, a statistical physicist who was cited “for the development of mathematically rigorous, physics-based models of nonlinear and complex systems that have significantly impacted a broad range of fields including neuroscience, environmental science and geophysics.”  

“One of the things I’ve been pleased to see when I’ve attended the APS March Meeting in recent years is that this interdisciplinary branch of physics has grown and diversified, and increasingly welcomes participation of scientists and engineers from other disciplines.”
