In 2017 Gabor David was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Hungarian Order of Merit for his accomplishments in experimental nuclear physics.

Research Prof. David received his PhD at Stony Brook in 1991, went to Columbia University, then worked at BNL until 2016 on the PHENIX experiment. His main topic is direct photon and neutral meson production in heavy ion collisions, he played crucial role in discovering jet quenching at RHIC, as well as prompt and thermal radiation and flow of photons.
