Edgar Y. Choueiri (born 1961 in Lebanon) is a Lebanese American plasma physicist and currently President of the Lebanese Academy of Sciences. He is best known for clarifying the role of plasma instabilities in spacecraft electric thrusters (see plasma propulsion), for conceiving and developing new spacecraft propulsion concepts and, more recently, for his work on 3D audio.
Choueiri is Professor of applied physics and aerospace engineering at Princeton University, where he is also Director of the Electric Propulsion and Plasma Dynamics Laboratory and Director of Princeton's Engineering Physics Program. He is Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and President of the Electric Rocket Propulsion Society.
