Sergey Frolov was one of two-dozen top early career academic scientists named as 2016 Cottrell Scholars.
The designation comes with a $100,000 award for research and teaching. The Cottrell Scholar (CS) program champions the very best early career teacher-scholars in chemistry, physics, and astronomy by providing these significant discretionary awards.
Outstanding candidates are admitted to the ranks of Cottrell Scholars through a stringent peer-review process based on their innovative research proposals and education programs. Sergey’s proposal is Experimental Investigation of One-Dimensional Topological Phases.
