Congratulations to former MARVEL members Antimo Marrazzo and Pablo Piaggi on winning the Prof. René Wasserman and IBM Research
awards for work on novel materials and entropy, respectively! 

Ten young EPFL researchers have been rewarded for their research projects this year again. These prizes are offered by Foundations and EPFL.

Among these 10, two awardees are connected to MARVEL:

Pablo Miguel Piaggi receives the IBM Research Award

Sponsored by IBM Research GmbH Zurich Research Laboratory, this prize rewards a doctoral thesis or a master project undertaken at the EPFL. It is aimed at promoting research in computational sciences and recognizes outstanding projects developing advanced modelling and simulation methods or their applications to important topics in diverse areas of science (physics, chemistry, and biology) and engineering. The prize was awarded to Pablo Miguel Piaggi for his thesis “Entropy as a tool for crystal discovery".

Pablo Miguel Piaggi was involved in MARVEL in the Design & Discovery 1 project in the group of Michele Parrinello.

Antimo Marrazzo receives the Professor René Wasserman Award

Sponsored by the family Wasserman, founder of the group Eutectic-Castolin and TeroLab Service Management SA, this prize rewards either a Doctoral Thesis or a Post-doctoral Research, undertaken at the EPFL. It aims at distinguishing innovative and high-level research in the field of new materials. This year, the prize was awarded to Antimo Marrazzo for his thesis "Electronic Structure and Topology of Novel Materials".

Antimo Marrazzo was involved in MARVEL in the Design & Discovery 3 and the Incubator 1 projects in the group of Nicola Marzari.
