Greg Moore, Geraldine Cochran elected APS Fellows

Sept 28, 2020
We are pleased to announce that two of our faculty members have been elected 2020 Fellows of the American Physical Society (APS).  Fellowship in the APS is a distinct honor signifying recognition by one's professional peers.  Each year, < 0.5% of the Society's membership is recognized by election to the status of APS Fellow.


Greg Moore was nominated by the Division of Particles and Fields.  His citation reads: "For wide-ranging and infuential contributions to many areas of mathematical physics including string theory, supersymmetric gauge theory, and conformal field theory, all of which have impacted condensed matter theory, quantum computation, and pure mathematics."

Geraldine Cochran was nominated by the Forum on Education.  Her citation reads: "For scholarly advocacy around equitable access that pushes the boundaries of physics education, especially for Black women and women from other minoritized and marginalized ethnicities, for advancing research on racial justice in physics education, leading to deeper understanding of structures of power."

Please join us in congratulating Greg and Geraldine on receiving this very prestigious recognition of their scholarly accomplishments.
