Dr. Bing Gu Wins ACS 2018 PHYS Division Postdoctoral Research Award

June 18, 2018

Bing_GuDr. Bing Gu (Franco group) has been named as one of four recipients to win a 2018 Young Investigator Award by the Physical Chemistry division (PHYS) of the American Chemical Society (ACS).  Each year the PHYS division recognizes four young researchers for their work as postdoctoral fellows (two for theory and two for experiments).  The winners are invited to speak about their research at the Fall ACS meeting in August, this year in Boston. 

This award was given for Dr. Bing Gu's postdoctoral work in the Franco group developing decoherence timescales, new methods in quantum dynamics, and investigating the effective properties of matter driven far from equilibrium.
