Physics professor lauded for NSF efforts with prestigious award
Date:9/20/2007

Kent State University Professor of Physics Dr. Satyendra Kumar recently was honored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) with its Directors Award for Excellence for recognition of exceptional performance in coordinating merit review of interdisciplinary condensed matter physics proposals. In all, seven program directors received the distinction during a ceremony held in Arlington, Va.

The NSF Directors Award is the highest award presented in recognition of those employees who demonstrate an exceptional commitment to the tradition of equal opportunity by promoting its principles and actions within the Foundation, as well as in the scientific and engineering communities.

Kumar has been a program director for the Condensed Matter Physics (CMP) program of the Division of Materials Research at the NSF since November 2005. The three program directors administer approximately $30 million in research grants annually to fund research into conventional and high-temperature superconductivity, quantum fluids, nano-materials, photonics, fluid dynamics, and other areas of interest to physics and materials science communities.
