2020 New Horizons in Physics Prize

For incisive contributions to the understanding of topological states of matter and the relationships between them.


I am honored to receive this award, and want to thank the Breakthrough Prize for its work in promoting science. I would also like to thank my many mentors, friends, colleagues, and collaborators over the years. Physics is a collaborative endeavor, and nothing is better than working with friends on interesting problems. Finally, I want to thank my family – my parents, brothers, and especially my wife Sarah, for their support over the years.
