Qiming Li and Xiaosha Graduate Scholarship for Excellent Research in Physics awarded to Chirag Vaswani

Qiming Li and Xiaosha Graduate Scholarship for Excellent Research in Physics is a new award at the Department of Physics and Astronomy. It is given to a graduate student for outstanding research performed at ISU as evidenced by the nominations of at least three faculty members and strong publication record among other requirements.

The first recipient of this award is Chirag Vaswani who is conducting his research under the supervision of Prof. Jigang Wang. Chirag’s main research interest is in topology-enabled quantum logic and information science. He works on establishing topological control principles driven by quantum coherence. Chirag has already acquired international reputation for breaking new grounds in driven quantum systems in topological matter, superconductor and semiconductors.
