Nobel laureates recognise Physics graduate
1 November 2010
Physics graduate Leron Borsten was awarded the prize for the best student presentation at the 2010 International School of Subnuclear Physics in Erice, Sicily, at the end of August. The board which assessed the presentations included two Nobel laureates and the directors of CERN and Fermilab. Leron’s talk was based on a recent paper, Four qubit entanglement from string theory, written in collaboration with his PhD supervisor, Professor Michael Duff (Physics), and other authors from Imperial and Stanford University. Leron graduated from Imperial in 2006 and has just been awarded his PhD.
