Emory physicist Eric Weeks loves his lab, and his graduate students. In fact, he is featured in a video (see above) extolling the awesomeness of Kazem (rhymes with "microcosm") Edmond, who recently got his PhD at Emory and is now a post-doc at NYU.
Weeks specializes in soft condensed matter, or "squishy stuff." He also appears to have a soft side when it comes to promoting his students.
Weeks and Kazem Edmonds just made a breakthrough in the physics of glass, published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
