Dear AKPA colleagues,
I am pleased to announce that the 2019 OYRA will be given to two outstanding Korean physicists.
l Professor Hyowon Park at University of Illinois at Chicago who has made major breakthroughs in theoretical understanding of strongly correlated system using dynamic mean field theory. This is a problem that has been considered too difficult to solve numerically and his impressive publication record reflects his productivity in this area.
l Dr. Young Jin Kim at Los Alamos National Lab, who has built highly sensitive, state-of-the-art detectors such as SQUID, nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR), and atomic magnetometers for fundamental and applied sciences.
The award ceremony will take place at the following two events.
l Sunday, March 3: the 2019 Joint KPS-AKPA Symposium at Harvard University (see the symposium program at https://physics.uchicago.edu/2019-KPS-AKPA-timetable)
l Tuesday, March 5: the APS FIP (Forum of International Physics) Reception at 6pm at the Boston Convention Center. AKPA is co-sponsoring this reception.
Please join me in congratulating Professor Hyowon Park and Dr. Young Jin Kim for their outstanding achievements.
