Nicole Yunger-Halpern Awarded the 2024 Hermann Weyl Prize

Nicole Yunger Halpern (IPST/NIST/QuICS) will be awarded the  2024 Hermann Weyl Prize at the International Colloquium on Group Theoretical Methods in Physics, Cotonou, Benin, July 15-19, 2024,

The prize provides recognition for young scientists who have performed original work of significant scientific quality in the area of understanding physics through symmetries.

A theorist who works at the interface of quantum information science, AMO physics, and condensed matter physics, Yunger-Halpern was nominated for “her innovative contributions to quantum thermodynamics in the presence of non-Abelian charges, and for her creative use of symmetries that has paved the way to experimental exploration. Her impressive contributions to the public understanding of science are commended”.
