David Moore Named
2009 LANL Fellow
In November 2009, commendations for exemplary scientific research were bestowed upon Los Alamos National Laboratory researcher David S. Moore by the Laboratory Fellows organization. Moore received the 2009 Laboratory’s Fellows Prize for research after being selected by a committee of five Laboratory Fellows. The Fellows organization includes some of the Laboratory’s most prominent scientists.
The Fellows Prize for Outstanding Leadership in Science or Engineering commends individuals who stimulate the research interests of talented younger laboratory staff members and who encourage junior researchers to make the personal sacrifices necessary to become effective leaders. The committee selected Moore for “his inspirational technical leadership in the fields of shock physics and the science of explosives detection.” Moore has worked to develop the next generation of scientists in this field by mentoring students at all levels, from high school to graduate- and post-graduate institutions. Many of these students have become laboratory staff members. Additionally, according to the prize committee, Moore is a nationally recognized leader in explosives detection and “is an exemplary citizen to the laboratory, to the international scientific community, and to the nation.”
Moore has been involved with IUPAC for many years and was one of the very first U.S. young observers in the 1980s to attend IUPAC General Assemblies. He began his engagement with the Commission on Spectrochemical analysis, eventually becoming a titular member of the Analytical Chemistry Division, of which he became division vice president and then president (2002–2003). Among his many contributions to IUPAC was the successful transformation of the Orange Book into a online resource. CI congratulates David for his achievements at LANL and for his “international citizenship.”
