Professor Martin Greven of the School of Physics and Astronomy has been selected as a Distinguished McKnight University Professor. The award recognizes Greven's research in the field of experimental condensed matter physics. Greven will receive a grant of $100,000 to be used over a five year period.

He will also retain the title of Distinguished University Professor as long as he remains at the University and his name will appear with other recipients of the Professorship on the Scholar's Walk.

The award recognizes outstanding faculty who have recently achieved full professor status. Only a handful of Distinguished McKnight University Professors are selected each year.
