Prof. Daniël Boer
has been elected as Fellow of the
American Physical Society
The APS Fellowship Program recognizes members who have made exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise in physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education. Prof. Boer, Director of the Van Swinderen Institute for Particle Physics and Gravity at the University of Groningen, has specifically been elected as Fellow “for his contributions towards the understanding of the spin and momentum structure of quarks and gluons in nucleons, in particular those relevant in single spin asymmetries, and for studies of the color glass condensate phase in quantum chromodynamics.”
Only a half percent of the members of the American Physical Society is recognized and honoured for election to the status of fellow.
