Juan Chamorro awarded NSF MPS-Ascend Fellowship
Quantum Foundry Postdoctoral Researcher Juan Chamorro has been awarded a Mathematical and Physical Sciences Ascending Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (MPS-Ascend) from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The prestigious fellowship provides $100,000 per year for up to three years. The program supports outstanding future scientists who will broaden the participation of underrepresented minorities as future leaders in MPS fields and facilitates their transition from postdoctoral researchers into a faculty appointment. Co-Advised by Professors Stephen Wilson and Ram Seshadri, Dr. Chamorro will use computation to predict, chemical synthesis to create, and physical characterization techniques to measure materials with unique crystal structures and electronic behaviors during the course of his fellowship.
