People, papers and presentations

Andriy Nevidomskyy, assistant professor of physics and astronomy at Rice, received a Cottrell Scholars Award from the Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA). The award includes a grant to support Nevidomskyy’s research and teaching related to superconductivity in “strange” metals. The Cottrell Scholar Awards are named in honor of Frederick Gardner Cottrell, a scientist, inventor and philanthropist who founded what is now RCSA in 1912 to provide support for scientific research and experimentation at scholarly institutions. Only about 10 percent of the early career teacher-scholars at Ph.D.-granting institutions who apply to the Cottrell Scholar program are accepted.
