Scott Aaronson wins Alan T. Waterman Award

The NSF just announced that our own Scott Aaronson has been named a co-recipient of this year’s prestigious Alan T. Waterman award! The award is granted to outstanding researchers under the age of 35 across any field of science or engineering which is supported by the NSF.

Not only is this great news for Scott, but a rising tide lifts all boats: the entire field of quantum computing benefits when our talented researchers get recognition for their achievements.

Congratulations to The Optimizer on this richly deserved award.

    I like how when NSF asked the two winners for photos of their work, the other one sent in a photo of his bee-robot, and Scott sent a picture of himself proving a theorem in a sarong. I can imagine his thought process going like “This illustrates my work as well as anything else.”

    Aram: In this case, as in many others, your imagination is right on the mark! 🙂

    Thanks so much, current and former Pontiffs.
