Igor Klebanov, Princeton University's Eugene Higgins Professor of Physics, was awarded the 2014 Caterina Tomassoni and Felice Pietro Chisesi Prize for outstanding achievements in physics. Klebanov was honored for "his central role in one of the most remarkable recent developments of theoretical physics: the duality between gravity and gauge quantum field theory." Established in 2001, the award includes a 30,000 euro prize. Klebanov received the prize during a June 19 ceremony at the Sapienza University of Rome in Italy.
