Because the number of APS Fellows elected each year is limited to no more than one half of one percent of the membership, it is a prestigious recognition for one's contribution to physics.

Ingrid was nominated by APS Division of Astrophysics and elected

"For scientific leadership and meticulous work in instrumentation, in novel tests of General Relativity using multiple binary radio pulsars, and in the detailed study of numerous interesting radio pulsars systems using high-precision timing."

Ingrid was also awarded the 2017 Martin Award from the Canadian Astronomical Society (CASCA) and Rutherford Memorial Medal in Physics from the Royal Society of Canada last year.

Congratulations again Ingrid!
