Physics Professors Named as APS Fellows

Posted on: Sept. 24, 2019

Congratulations to physics professors Lisa Manning (also director of the Biomaterials Institute) and Christian Santangelo who have been elected as Fellows of the American Physical Society (APS). Each year, this honor is accorded to just half of one percent of the Society’s members, in acknowledgement of their contributions to the field. Lisa Manning was recommended by the Division of Condensed Matter Physics with this citation: “For microscopic theory of flow and rigidity in disordered and biological materials.” Chris Santangelo was recommended by the Division of Soft Matter for “[S]eminal theoretical contributions exploiting geometry and topology to understand the elasticity of soft materials.” Congratulations, Lisa and Chris!
