Nick Read Awarded 2015 Dirac Medal

August 10, 2015

Nick Read has been awarded the 2015 Dirac Medal along with Greg Moore (formerly of Yale) and Alexei Kitaev, for their work on conformal field theory and non-abelian quasiparticle statistics in condensed matter systems and the application of these ideas to quantum computation.  Previous winners span the breadth of theoretical physics and include Roberto Car, Sidney Coleman, Ed Witten, and Peter Zoller.  It’s great recognition of Nick’s outstanding contributions to the physics community.
