ICTP Prize 2014

Pablo S. Cornaglia


ICTP has awarded its 2014 ICTP Prize to Pablo S. Cornaglia, a condensed matter physicist from Argentina, for his works on topics in solid state theory, including strongly correlated electron systems, electronic transport through nanostructures, and problems on graphene, molecular transistors, and quantum impurity. Cornaglia's research has led to a better understanding of how interactions between electrons and quasiparticles known as phonons affect certain properties in solids and nanosystems.

The 2014 ICTP Prize honours Jacques Friedel, a leading theoretical condensed matter physicist who made rich contributions to various branches of solid state physics and was a supporter of condensed matter activities at ICTP in its early days.
