Daniel Cohen awarded the 2013 Daniel Cubicciotti Award

Congratulations to Daniel! This award is given by the Electrochemical Society (ECS) and I especially like the fact that the award is about doing high impact work and having fun!

“One feature that distinguishes this award from others is that extracurricular activities and applicants joie de vivre are taken into account side-by-side with scientific excellence. Balancing the two is tricky both in picking the winner and in living your own life.”
