Professor Mann has received a KITP Scholars Award, a program by the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UC Santa Barbara. This special fellowship initiative selects its visiting Scholars from among faculty at primarily undergraduate institutions who maintain active research in some area of theoretical physics. KITP is the foremost scientific research facility for theorists in physics and allied fields to explore new ideas and to work together intensely on questions at the leading edges of science. KITP’s driving force has been the exploration and promotion of new areas of scientific study. The institute fosters international and cross-disciplinary networks, trains the next generation of theorists, and engages the public in its collaborative, transformational research.
