Congratulations to our former PhD student Edoardo Baldini for winning the IBM Prize of the Swiss Physical Society.

Since 1991, the Swiss Physical Society (SPS) has been awarding prizes in various categories, donated by various renowned institutions and companies, to ensure that Switzerland continues to maintain its high level of research quality.

One these Prizes is the Award in Condensed Matter Physics, which is sponsored by IBM. This year, it went to Edoardo Baldini who carried out his PhD at the EPFL under the supervision of Professors Majed Chergui and Fabrizio Carbone. Currently at MIT, Baldini also won a Chorafas Prize and a Springer Prize for his PhD thesis, “Nonequilibrium Dynamics of Collective Excitations in Strongly Interacting and Correlated Quantum Systems”.

Baldini will receive the Award at a special ceremony during the SPS 2019 meeting in Zurich.
