Aron Wall wins Breakthrough New Horizons Prize

Aron Wall, a theoretical physicist working in black holes and quantum gravity at Stanford (who will shortly be an assistant professor at University of Cambridge), wins the Breakthrough New Horizons Prize, a prize for promising early career scientists.

Wall is also a Christian, and writes in a personal blog called Undivided Looking, where he charmingly refers to all known Christians as saints and writes insightful commentary on various aspects of Christian theology and their intersection with theoretical physics, for example: Theology: Less Speculative than Quantum Gravity. I also especially appreciated his posts on WLC’s Kalam arguments.

It’s always refreshing to see Christians being accomplished in science. When I was growing up, people like Wall assured me that you could be a serious scientist and still be a Christian.
