Stanford research scientist Aron Wall has been awarded a 2019 Breakthrough New Horizons in Physics Prize for fundamental insights about quantum information, quantum field theory and gravity.
The $100,000 prize is given each year to up to three “promising junior researchers who have already produced important work,” according to the prize website. This year, Wall shares the prize with physicists Daniel Jafferis of Harvard University and Daniel Harlow of MIT. Wall has co-authored scientific papers with both of them. They will receive their prize at an award ceremony to be held Nov. 4.
