Dr. Joel Bowman Receives the Alexander von Humboldt Award

Dr. Joel Bowman has been named as a recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. This award, granted “in recognition of a researchers entire achievements”, highlights the profound impact of a researcher’s previous and future contributions to the field.

Research in the Bowman Lab utilizes theoretical and computational techniques to explore chemical reaction and vibrational dynamics of molecules, molecular clusters, and molecular solids and fluids.

The Humboldt award is the most recent of several honors that Dr. Bowman has received, including the Herschbach prize for Theoretical Chemistry in 2013. In addition, he was elected as a Fellow to both the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Physical Society and elected to the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Sciences.

Congratulations, Dr. Bowman!!

Joel Bowman Elected to the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Sciences

Joel Bowman was elected into the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Sciences.

The International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science was founded in Menton in 1967. The members are chosen among the scientists of all countries in the field of quantum molecular sciences. The Academy has as its main goal to provide a forum for international contact and collaboration and a periodical evaluation of the main developments, advances and promising direction of research in the broad field of its interests. One of the main initiatives of the Academy is the organization of a series of International Congresses in Quantum Chemistry, with an interval of three years. Another initiative of the Academy consists of an annual attribution of a medal to a young member of the scientific community who has distinguished himself/herself by a pioneering and important contribution.
