Shuo Sun, assistant professor of physics at the University of Colorado Boulder, and Kyle Luh, assistant professor of mathematics, and their fellow recipients will receive $5,000 in seed money for the 2021-22 academic year to enhance their research as they launch their academic careers. Each recipient’s institution matches the award, and winners may use the $10,000 grants to purchase equipment, continue research or travel to professional meetings.
Sun, who is also an associate fellow at JILA (a joint institute of CU Boulder and the National Institute of Standards and Technology), focuses his research in the areas of quantum optics, nanophotonics (the study of the behavior of light) and experimental quantum information science.
