Veronica Vaida is an American physicist.



Veronica Vaida got her Ph.D. from Yale University in 1977 and the same year became a Xerox posdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. Three years later she got an A. P. Sloan fellowship and four years later got a Camille and Henry Dreyfus teacher scholarship. In 1994 she got an Erskine fellowship from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. She got two more fellowships in 2004, one of which was from American Association for the Advancement of Science and the other was from American Physical Society. She became a fellow for Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at the same Harvard from 2004-2005, and during the same years got another fellowship from John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. From 2007-2008 she was a distinguished lecturer at Sigma Xi and is currently a professor at University of Colorado Boulder.
