Congratulations to Ali Yazdani on receiving a Humboldt Research Award "in recognition of (his) entire achievements to date....fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights (that) have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future."
Please join us in congratulating Paul Steinhardt whose work on quasicrystals is
recognized in the name of a new mineral: Steinhardtite.
For his wide-ranging contributions to biological physics encompassing all scales from the molecular to that of organismic populations. His early insights on how nanotechnology and microfabrication can be employed have uncovered both new physics and revolutionized the laboratory practice of biology.
