David Hsieh awarded Packard Fellowship

Hsieh-David-CC-FACULTY-PMA-8211-NEWS-WEBDavid Hsieh is a 2015 recipient of the Packard Fellowship. This award “provides early-career scientists with flexible funding and the freedom to take risks and explore new frontiers in their fields.” Hsieh is one of 18 new fellows recognized by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. Hsieh plans to explore the possibility of using light to alter the electronic phase of materials in order to manipulate their macroscopic properties. For example, he says, “Can I use electromagnetic radiation to change something from a metal to an insulator, or from a magnet to a nonmagnet?” If such tailoring of materials properties with light is possible, it could open the door to the creation of more powerful and more versatile electronic devices, potentially at a lower energy cost.
