Sunday, July 19, 2015

The New York City-based Simons Foundation has announced the selection of eighteen mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists as Simons Investigators. We are proud to announce that Ashvin Vishwanath is one of them.

The Investigators program provides $100,000 annually for an initial period of five years to outstanding scientists, enabling them to devote years to the study of a fundamental question in math, physics, or computer science. The awards are renewable for an additional five years, depending on a review in the fourth year.
