The ICCUB postdoctoral researcher Ryotaku Suzuki has been recognized by the XVI edition of the prestigious Seitaro Nakamura award for his work on the paper “Topology-changing horizons at large D as Ricci flows" which was published in 2019 alongside ICCUB’s senior researcher Roberto Emparan as co-author.


Dr. Suzuki joined the Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University of Barcelona in 2018 as a member of the gravitation and cosmology research group and has since worked in several areas including general relativity in the large D limit.


The award, which is named after Dr. Seitaro Nakamura (1913-2007) who had produced substantial research on theoretical particle physics particularly on two-meson and beta decay, was established in 2006 in order to encourage young researchers for their future endeavors in theoretical physics and the related fields.
