Stephen Weber, Retired Research Scientist and Physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of physics research.
As a student, Dr. Weber attended Princeton University, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in physics in 1973. He continued his education at the University of California Berkeley, earning a Master of Arts in astronomy in 1974, and a PhD in 1978. He started working as a research fellow at the California Institute of Technology, where he remained until 1980, when he became an assistant professor at Dartmouth College. In 1982, Dr. Weber took a position as a research scientist and physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where he worked for more than 30 years, until his retirement in 2015. Among his scientific achievements, he was a part of the investigation of Rayleigh-Taylor instability, and implosions in inertial confinement fusion.
Dr. Weber is a member of the American Physical Society, from which he received an award for Excellence in Plasma Physics in 1995. From a young age, he was interested in astronomy and science—as a teenager, he built a telescope, but after pursuing his higher education, he gravitated toward physics. He has contributed various articles to professional journals over the course of his career, and he cites Frank Shu, his thesis advisor, and Violet Weeks as mentors in his career. As a testament to his success, experience, and stature as a physicist and researcher, Dr. Weber has been included in multiple editions of Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in the West, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, and Who’s Who in America.
