Carter to Receive APS Irving Langmuir Prize in Chemical Physics

Emily A. Carter, Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor in Energy and the Environment, faculty member in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and an associated faculty member in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, has been named the recipient of the 2017 Irving Langmuir Prize in Chemical Physics of the American Physical Society (APS).  The prize recognizes Carter’s achievements in "the development of rigorous, ab initio methods such as embedding techniques and orbital free density functional theory, and their application to modeling the electronic structure of large systems, including solid materials, and charge transfer phenomena between molecules and surfaces."  The APS Langmuir Prize is awarded once every two years, and is accompanied by $10,000.  Carter will receive the award at the APS March Meeting in New Orleans, LA, on March 13, 2017.
