IceCube collaborator and Harvard University physics professor Carlos Argüelles-Delgado is among 19 outstanding teacher-scholars in chemistry, physics, and astronomy named recipients of the Research Corporation for Science Advancement’s 2024 Cottrell Scholar Awards. Each awardee receives $120,000.
Recipients are chosen through a rigorous peer-review process of applications from a wide variety of public and private research universities and primarily undergraduate institutions in the United States and Canada. Their award proposals incorporate both research and science education.
Argüelles is developing innovative methods to better “catch” neutrinos and analyze them for clues that could unveil new physical phenomena and explain the neutrinos’ mysterious mass. They are also integrating the latest advancements in artificial intelligence, specifically large language models, into the undergraduate physics curriculum.
