As Editor-in-Chief of Physics, I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2020 Young Investigator Award sponsored by Physics.
The Award is granted to Dr. Edoardo Baldini, Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. Dr. Edoardo Baldini works in experimental physics, and his research interests include the nonequilibrium dynamics of quantum materials, the discovery and coherent manipulation of collective modes, photoinduced phase transitions, ultrafast terahertz to ultraviolet spectroscopy, as well as the development and implementation of time- and angle-resolved methods. Dr. Edoardo Baldini received his PhD in 2017 and has an outstanding publication record, comprising over thirty publications in leading scientific journals which have attracted high interest, and has also recently published a monograph in Springer. Dr. Baldini has received many prestigious grants and awards in the area of physics, and he works and participates in a great deal of physics education. This is indeed an outstanding achievement in today’s competitive environment. On behalf of Physics, I am happy to congratulate Dr. Edoardo Baldini on his new achievement.
As the awardee, Dr. Edoardo Baldini will receive an honorarium of 1,000 CHF, an offer to publish a peer-reviewed paper free-of-charge in Physics in 2021, and an engraved plaque.
I would like to thank the Award Committee Members for their excellent work in the difficult task of evaluating the proposals by excellent candidates.
Prof. Dr. Edward Sarkisyan-Grinbaum
