Two LIGO Scientists on the 2016 APS Fellows List

Michael Landry (LHO) and Valery Frolov (LLO) are elected the 2016 APS Fellows. Valery Frolov, Senior Research Scientist at the LIGO Livingston Observatory, and Michael Landry, the Head of the LIGO Hanford Observatory, have been elected the 2016 Fellows of the American Physical Society (APS). Frolov's award citation notes "his contributions to gravitational-wave physics, in particular the commissioning of the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory detector that observed GW140914." Landry is honored for "contributions to the first direct detection of gravitational waves, including leadership of early efforts in detector calibration and data analysis, leadership of the installation of the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory at Hanford and leadership of its first observing run." Congratulations to Valery and Michael!
