Professor Receives Early Career Award

Physics professor Ben Frandsen recently received an Early Career Award from the United States Department of Energy. The award was given to 76 scientists from across the country this year to bolster the nation’s scientific workforce by providing support to exceptional researchers during the crucial early career years when many scientists do their most formative work. As part of the award, Frandsen will receive $750,000 in grants over the next five years to research the structure and magnetism of next-generation energy materials. The funds will also support numerous graduate and undergraduate student researchers.
