Dr. Angela Harper and Dr. Patricia Poths are invited to the 73rd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

March 25, 2024

The Fritz Haber Institute is delighted to announce that two members of the Theory Department, Dr. Angela Harper and Dr. Patricia Poths, have been selected, together with 648 other Young Scientists from around the World, to participate in the 73rd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, which will take place from June 30th to July 5th, 2024.

Dr. Angela Harper is an Alexander-von-Humboldt Postdoctoral Researcher in the group of Dr. Christoph Scheurer, working on Machine Learning Driven Nuclear Magnetic Resonance for Battery Materials. Besides being an excellent and dedicated scientist, Angela has been engaged in several outreaching activities, such as organizing the Berlin PostDoc Day, and has shown a high commitment to fostering Women in STEM.

Dr. Patricia Poths is also an Alexander-von-Humboldt Postdoctoral Researcher and works in the group of Dr. Sebastian Matera, focusing on Dynamic Catalyst Restructuring with adaptive Kinetic Monte Carlo. During coronavirus lockdown, Patricia helped design and implement a computational chemistry workshop for the California NanoSystems Institute on virus self-assembly, providing scientific outreach to high school students.

In addition to the unique opportunity to participate in the meeting, Dr. Harper and Dr. Poths will become part of a special community, a network of excellence where scientific dialogue is fostered and nurtured.

Since 1951, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting has taken place every year, supporting scientific exchange between different disciplines, cultures, and generations. This year, it will be a week full of Physics, focusing on three key themes:

  • Quantum Physics and Quantum Technologies
  • Physics-based Solutions to the Energy Challenge
  • Artificial Intelligence in Physics

The selection process included a thorough evaluation not only of the applicant´s academic achievements and extracurricular activities, but also of their motivation, dedication, and engagement in the community. Therefore, the Fritz Haber Institute and especially the Theory Department celebrate the achievement of Dr. Harper and Dr. Poths and have no doubt they will represent the Institute with distinction.


What the awardees say:


“I am very excited, and honored to have been selected to attend the Lindau Meeting this year! It is going to be a great opportunity not only to meet other scientists from around the world but also to hear from Nobel Prize winners about their journeys in science." Dr.  Angela Harper

 "I am thrilled to have been selected to take part in the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, and am looking forward to stimulating discussion. Having the chance to discuss the cutting edge of Physics with so many excellent researchers is fabulous, and I can’t wait to make the most of it." Dr. Patricia Poths
