The European Academy of Sciences has elected Angel Rubio as a fellow of its materials science division in recognition of his scientific achievements.
Rubio is a distinguished research scientist at the Center for Computational Quantum Physics at the Flatiron Institute in New York City and a director of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg.
The European Academy of Sciences is a fully independent association that aims to recognize the top European scientists and elect them to its membership. The organization’s goal is to transcend national borders to strengthen European science and scientific cooperation.
Rubio’s research focuses on the theory and modeling of the electronic and structural properties of condensed matter. He also works on the development of theoretical tools to investigate the electronic response of materials and molecules to external electromagnetic fields.
Rubio previously received the 2018 Max Born Medal and Prize, the 2016 medal of the Spanish Royal Physical Society, the 2014 Premio Rey Jaime I for basic research, the 2006 DuPont Prize in nanotechnology, the 2005 Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award of the Humboldt Foundation and two European Research Council advanced grants in 2011 and 2016. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a member of the Academia Europaea, and a foreign associate member of the National Academy of Sciences.
