Carl Wieman Moves to Stanford

I mean, where else would highly-sought-after, Nobel laureate end up?

Carl Weiman has taken up a faculty position in the Physics Dept. and in the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University. He brings with him quite a program in physics education, I must say.

Carl Wieman’s crusade to improve undergraduate science education is now based at Stanford University.

The physics Nobelist and former White House science education czar has been named a faculty member in both the physics department and Stanford’s Graduate School of Education. The joint appointments, effective 1 September, give Wieman an academic perch to take his research on learning in new directions while continuing to incorporate those insights into the classroom.
