Charles de Bourcy (2008, Physics) wins Fulbright Science and Technology Award

Congratulations to Charles de Bourcy (2008, Physics) who has won a Fulbright Science and Technology Award.

The Fulbright Science and Technology Award provides exceptional students from outside the USA with an opportunity to pursue PhD study at top US universities. It is one of the most prestigious scholarships in the world for science and technology students.

Mr de Bourcy will use the scholarship to take a PhD in Applied Physics at Stanford University.

“I am interested in the surprising phenomena that emerge in quantum many-body systems such as topological insulators and superconductors on the one hand, and interested in how quantum effects could be exploited for next-generation technology such as quantum information processing applications on the other hand,” Mr de Bourcy said. “I am looking forward to studying these areas and their interconnections at Stanford, as well as to exploring the Bay Area and getting involved in Stanford’s musical life.”
