Vadim Oganesyan, Professor and Chair of the CSI Department of Physics and Astronomy, has recently been elected as an American Physical Society (APS) Fellow.

Professor Oganesyan’s nomination, made by the Division of Condensed Matter Physics, cited him “For highly influential and foundational work on the theory of strongly interacting quantum systems, including ground-breaking work on many-body localization.”

According to APS, “The APS Fellowship Program recognizes members who have made exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise in physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education. Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the Society membership is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow in the American Physical Society. This year, 163 Fellows were selected and recognized for their contributions to science.”
