A Florida State University researcher who has spent three decades investigating the mysteries of particle physics through computer simulations has achieved one of academia's top distinctions. Bernd Berg, the Dirac Professor of Physics at FSU, has been chosen to receive Germany's Humboldt Research Award, given to outstanding academics who are at the peak of their careers.
