Frank Wilczek is a professor in theoretical physics at MIT and has recently become a professor at Stockholm University, thanks to a grant from the Swedish Research Council.  He was awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics (along with David Gross och David Politzer) and has made important contributions to the understanding of the strong interaction, the Higgs field, black holes, string theory, and condensed matter physics.

Now, Wiczek has also won the 2016 Prange Prize from the University of Maryland and given an open lecture entitled “Some intersections of art and science.”
