The American Physical Society has elected Dr. Burch as one of the Society’s fellows for 2022.
The APS Fellowship Program recognizes members who have made exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise in physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education.
Each year, no more than one-half of one percent of the Society membership is recognized by their peers for election to Fellow of the American Physical Society. This year, 155 Fellows were selected and recognized for their contributions to science.
Dr. Burch was elected “For pioneering studies of two-dimensional materials including van der Waals heterostructures and developing the methods used to created layered van der Waals heterostructures.”
