Mid Career Research Excellence Award (Samsung & LG)
For creative materials contributions to the fabrication of responsive liquid crystalline matter at surfaces and interfaces.
For pioneering contributions to the physics of liquid crystalline shells.
Pierre Gilles de Gennes Medal
In recognition of his creative explorations and breakthrough contributions to the understanding of soft matter, in particular, liquid crystals, liquid crystal-colloidal and liquid crystal-polymer hybrid systems.
For his groundbreaking experimental and theoretical contributions to the fundamental science and applications of liquid crystals, particularly their ferroelectric, flexoelectric, topological defects, and chiral properties.
