Gemma De las Cuevas awarded START Prize of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF)

Physicist Gemma De las Cuevas of the Institute for Theoretical Physics (University of Innsbruck) was awarded a START Prize of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), amounting to up to EUR 1.2 Mio.

De las Cuevas receives the prize for her research on universal spin models, turing machines and neuronal nets, an interface between physics, computer sciences and artificial intelligence.

The fundamental aim of the START-Programme is the promotion of young scientists/scholars with at least two and at most eight years of postdoctoral experience who have already produced scientific work of a top international standard and whose scientific careers to date make it likely that they will continue to perform first-rate research in the future.
