NAKFI Nanostructures Alunnus Receives Grant from Simons Foundation

Today the Simons Foundation announced grants to 21 mathematicians, theoretical physicists and theoretical computer scientists. Among the scientists who received the unanticipated awards is NAKFI Nanostructures Alumnus Sharon Glotzer whose research uses computer simulations to understand how to manipulate matter at the nano- and meso-scales.  According to the Simons Foundation website, the awards are intended to provide "a stable base of support for outstanding scientists, enabling them to undertake long-term study of fundamental questions".  Dr. Glotzer will receive $660,000 over the next five years to support her research. Congratulations, Dr. Glotzer!
