Dr. Feliciano Giustino Elected Fellow of the American Physical Society 

Published Nov. 16, 2020

The Oden Institute's Dr. Feliciano Giustino has been elected to the American Physical Society (APS) Fellows 2020. Giustino, who is a professor of physics at the College of Natural Sciences, was recognized in the Division of Computational Physics for "pioneering contributions to the ab initio theory of electron-phonon interactions and its application to the electronic, optical, transport, and superconducting properties of solids."

Since 1921, the APS Fellowship Program has recognized members making advances in physics through original research and publication, or by making significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology, the teaching of physics or service and participation in the activities of the Society.

Fellowship is a distinct honor signifying recognition by one's professional peers. Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the Society’s membership (excluding student members) is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow of the American Physical Society.

"I am humbled and honored to be recognized by my peers at the APS Fellowship Program," Giustino said.
