MIT's Technology Review Names 2008 Blavatnik Awardee to TR35 List

Academy prize winner Andrew Houck is recognized again as a young innovator.

The Academy recognized the talent of the young physicist Andrew Houck more than a year ago when, as a 28 year-old postdoctoral student, he was selected as a winner in the 2008 Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists competition. Now assistant professor of electrical engineering at Princeton University, Houck, 30, has made it onto Technology Review's annual list of 35 top innovators under age 35. The MIT magazine commended Houck for "preserving information for practical quantum computing." As a Blavatnik winner, Houck received $15,000 in unrestricted funds from the Academy.
