Freedman receives MacArthur Fellowship
CBES senior investigator Danna Freedman has been named a 2022 MacArthur Fellow for “creating novel molecular materials with unique properties directly relevant to quantum information science,” the MacArthur Foundation announced.
Each MacArthur Fellow will receive a “no strings attached” grant of $800,000 over five years. The fellowships are intended to be investments in people, rather than projects, and are given directly to recipients with no reporting requirements. According to the Foundation, the three criteria for selection are exceptional creativity; promise for important future advances based on a track record of significant accomplishments; and potential for the fellowship to facilitate subsequent creative work.
The Foundation published a writeup on Freedman’s work and produced the video below.
