Ziqiang Wang

Professor of Physics Ziqiang Wang is among five physics and astronomy researchers to receive one of this year’s Research Corporation for Science Advancement’s competitive Cottrell Plus SEED (Singular Exceptional Endeavors of Discovery) Awards.

SEED Awards offer Cottrell Scholars the opportunity to start creative new research or educational activities, granting $50,000 for research projects.

Research Corporation for Science Advancement was founded in 1912 and funds basic research in the physical sciences—astronomy, chemistry, physics, and related fields—at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.

A theoretical physicist, Wang explores topics such as high temperature superconductors and other complex materials in an effort to better understand a range of phenomena. Some of his most recent work may help advance the science behind quantum computing.
