FACULTY AWARD: Sondhi receives Humboldt Research Award

Shivaji Sondhi, a Princeton University professor of physics, has received a Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany, which recognizes researchers who have had, and are expected to continue having, a significant impact on their discipline. The award allows Sondhi, whose research focuses largely on quantum condensed matter, to spend up to one year collaborating with researchers at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden, Germany. The Humboldt Foundation grants up to 100 Humboldt Research Awards annually, and the award is valued at 60,000 euros.
