Congratulations to Lisa Manning on Maria Goeppert Mayer award from the American Physical Society
The American Physical Society (APS) has awarded Prof. Lisa Manning the 2018 Maria Goeppert Mayer Award, which recognizes outstanding achievement by a woman physicist in the early years of her career. This recognition, granted to one physicist each year since 1986, includes both a cash award and support for public lectures at up to four institutions. Prof. Manning is also invited to present her work at the national APS March Meeting in 2018. The citation notes that the award is “for her use of computational and analytical tools to develop microscopic understanding of flow in disordered materials, ranging from metallic glasses to biological tissues.”
The American Physical Society is a non-profit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through its outstanding research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy, and international activities. APS represents over 54,000 members, including physicists in academia, national laboratories, and industry in the United States and throughout the world. Society offices are located in College Park, MD (Headquarters), Ridge, NY, and Washington, D.C.
