Félicie Albert is a scientist at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, USA, which she joined as a postdoctoral researcher in 2008, and as a staff scientist in 2010 in the National Ignition Facility (NIF) and Photon Science directorate. She earned her PhD in physics in 2007 from the Ecole Polytechnique in France, her MS in Optics from the University of Central Florida in 2004, and her BS in engineering from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Physique de Marseille, France, in 2003. Her research is on the generation of novel sources of electrons, x-rays and gamma-rays through laser-plasma interaction, laser-wakefield acceleration, and Compton scattering. She has conducted many experiments using high-intensity lasers, including NIF, LLNL’s Jupiter Laser Facility, OMEGA-EP, and Stanford’s Linac Coherent Light Source x-ray free electron laser. She is the recipient of a 2016 U.S. Department of Energy Early Career Research Program Award, and has been leading several Laboratory Directed Research and Development Projects at LLNL. She is also the recipient of the 2017 Katherine E. Weimer award from the American Physical Society for outstanding achievements in plasma science research, and was selected by the APS as an outstanding referee in 2015. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, and when not at work, she enjoys outdoor activities in the mountains or the ocean, and being in France with her family.
