William David (Dave) Pointer, principal nuclear engineer and Engineering Simulations section manager, was recently honored by the American Nuclear Society (ANS) with the 2012 Landis Young Member Engineering Achievement Award. Dave Pointer receives the Landis Award in recognition of his outstanding young career, exceptional technical achievements, and excellence in leadership to support the development of next generation simulation tools on high-performance computing platforms. The award will be presented to Pointer at the ANS Annual Meeting in Chicago (June 2012).

The Landis Award recognizes an individual who has made significant technical contributions in any one of the many engineering disciplines served by the Society. The attainment can be in the form of a new principle, concept, design, method of analysis, product emanating from research or development, or from effective application of engineering knowledge to yield a commercial service or product needed in the nuclear energy enterprise. Emphasis is placed on achievement demonstrating a high degree of technical merit and ingenuity.

The Nuclear Engineering Division of Argonne National Laboratory congratulates Dave on this distinguished achievement.
