Six graduate students were awarded 2021 Hsien and Daisy Yen Wu Scholarships. These scholarships recognize graduate students for their academic ability, performance and character as well as financial need.
Cornell researchers have discovered a rare “pseudogap” phenomenon that helps explain how the superconducting transition temperature can be greatly boosted in a single monolayer of iron selenide, and how it might be applied to other superconducting materials.
Joseph Margulies, professor of the practice of law and government, has been awarded the 2021 George D. Levy Faculty Award for his work to break down barriers for previously incarcerated people in Tompkins County.
