Brad Ramshaw Named CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholar

Brad Ramshaw, the Dick & Dale Reis Johnson Assistant Professor of Physics in the College of Arts and Sciences, have been named CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars.

CIFAR’s global scholars program supports outstanding early-career researchers through mentorship, an international network and professional skills development. The scholars also receive $100,000 CAD in unrestricted research support for two years.

McMahon and Ramshaw are among 13 recipients who were selected from 184 applications from 31 countries. The 2020-22 scholars represent academic institutions in Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States. Cornell is the only university with more than one scholar in this year’s cohort.

In addition to funding emerging projects in interdisciplinary theme areas such as Life and Health, and Information and Matter, the program also helps the researchers connect with their peers.
