Associate Professor Surjeet Rajendran is the recipient of two Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Fundamental Physics Innovation Awards this year.
These awards hope to stimulate ideas on innovative ways in which emerging technologies can be used to address pressing problems in fundamental physics. The awards support a variety of ways to bring people together to discuss and collaborate on ideas to advance fundamental physics.
Prof. Rajendran received a Convening Award to host a workshop dedicated to discussing emerging trends in theoretical particle physics relevant to understanding phenomena in our universe.
He also received a Visitor Award to visit Peter Graham at Stanford, to develop new techniques for laboratory detection of dark energy and low-frequency gravitational waves.
