2019 Sloan Research Fellowships Recognizes TQT-supported Faculty Hire, Dr. Christine Muschik
The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation congratulates the winners of the 2019 Sloan Research Fellowships. These 126 early-career scholars represent the most promising scientific researchers working today. Their achievements and potential place them among the next generation of scientific leaders in the U.S. and Canada. Winners receive $70,000, which may be spent over a two-year term on any expense supportive of their research.
Christine Muschik was selected as a 2019 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow in Physics. She is recognized for her research in quantum networks and quantum simulations, including exploration of the quantum simulation of ‘gauge’ theories that describe the interactions of fundamental particles like quarks and gluons. She hopes to turn this theory into technology by developing practical simulation concepts that might soon be realized in the lab, shedding light into the area of high-energy physics.
