The 2017 James D. Callen Fellowship for Excellence in Plasma Theory was warded to PhD student Florian Effenberg. Florian works on numerical modeling of 3D plasma edge transport and radiative divertor scenarios for the Wendelstein 7-X stellarator in Greifswald, Germany. He has undertaken groundbreaking assessment of 3D scrape-off layer transport studies during the startup-campaign of the device and is presently leading the research thrust on radiative divertor scenarios in the island divertor at W7-X. His work is funded under DoE grant DE-SC0014210. Congratulations, Florian!
