APS Fellow Archive

The APS Fellow Archive contains records of many APS Fellows from 1921 to the present. Please note some Fellows may not be displayed or may display with limited information.

The archive is a historical record and is not updated to reflect current information. All institutional affiliations reflect the Fellows’ affiliations at the time of election to APS Fellowship.

For a current listing of Fellows who are active members, or to find Fellows currently affiliated with your institution, please use the APS Member Directory. For questions about the archive or to inquire about locating a record, please contact APS Honors Staff at honors@aps.org.

Laura Finzi [2023]
Physics Department, Emory University
Citation: For pioneering work on magnetic tweezers to resolve the difference between full polymer elastic theory and the simplifying freely jointed chain model and to demonstrate the key role of DNA supercoiling in transcription regulation, and for using tethered particle motion to study genetic switches.
Nominated by: DBIO

Vernita D. Gordon [2023]
University of Texas at Austin
Citation: For fundamental contributions to the understanding of the role of physical properties in the development of bacterial biofilms and the interactions of biofilms with the immune system.
Nominated by: DBIO

Kerwyn Casey Huang [2023]
Stanford University
Citation: For elucidating the biophysical properties of the Gram-negative bacterial cell envelope, for highlighting the pivotal role of the outer membrane in conferring stiffness, and for overturning the paradigm of the cell wall as the sole determinant of mechanical stability.
Nominated by: DBIO

Pankaj Mehta [2023]
Boston University
Citation: For creative and impactful use of statistical mechanics tools in addressing a broad range of problems, from biological information processing and microbial ecology to machine learning theory.
Nominated by: DBIO

Sarah Veatch [2023]
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Citation: For foundational work in understanding the miscibility phase transition and associated critical phenomena in membranes, and for rigorously applying these physical concepts to biological processes.
