ORFE Professor Ahmadi has been elected a Kavli Fellow of the U. S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS). This honor is supported by the Kavli Foundation and involves participation in the NAS’ annual Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium. This year’s symposium was held in Irvine, California bringing together outstanding young scientists to discuss exciting advances and opportunities in a broad range of disciplines.
Frontier symposia are held for young scientists in the U.S. and around the world. “U.S. symposium participants are selected from among recipients of prestigious fellowships, awards, and other honors, as well as from nominations by NAS members and other participants. In addition to learning about research at the frontiers of fields other than their own, the program is intended to create a network of connections that can be maintained as participants advance in their careers.”
