Rachel Rosen Wins Lenfest Distinguished Faculty Award

Professor Rachel Rosen has received a 2017-2018 Lenfest Distinguished Faculty Award for her continued research on quantum field theory and its applications to particle physics, gravitational physics and condensed matter systems.

The awards were created in 2005 by Gerry Lenfest (LAW’58, HON’09), a trustee emeritus whose total donations of more than $100 million place him among Columbia’s most generous benefactors. His $12 million gift for the teaching awards honors exceptional instruction and scholarship, with a special emphasis on the mentoring of students in the arts and sciences.

Congratulations, Rachel!
