Qiang Lin receives inaugural Leonard Mandel Faculty Fellow Award

Congratulations to Qiang Lin, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering and optics at the University of Rochester. Qiang has been named the first Leonard Mandel Faculty Fellow. The award recognizes exceptional achievement by a junior faculty member in coherence and quantum optics. Lin received his Ph.D. in 2006 from the Institute of Optics, where he worked as a graduate student in the laboratory of Govind Agrawal. “He published 30 research papers before graduating, a record that is unlikely to be broken,” said Agrawal, the James C. Wyant Professor of Optics and professor of physics.
