Dr. Michael Falk has been named a Fellow of the American Physical Society

Dr. Michael Falk was selected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society. Dr. Falk’s election as a Fellow of the APS is acknowledgement of Dr. Falks work on computational materials science, structural materials, and optoelectronic and magnetic materials by the leading organization of physicists. APS stated that this prestigious award is “APS cited him “for fundamental advances in our understanding of the mechanical response of amorphous solids through the use of innovative computational methods and theories that reveal the connection between local rearrangements and large scale response.”

Dr. Falk is a Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and we would all like to congratulate Dr. Falk on this remarkable acknowledgement.
