NASA Announces Astronomy and Astrophysics Fellows for 2016

For Release: March 25, 2016


NASA has selected 36 fellows for its prestigious Einstein, Hubble, and Sagan Fellowships. Each post-doctoral fellowship provides three years of support to awardees to pursue independent research in astronomy and astrophysics. The new fellows will begin their programs in the fall of 2016 at a host university or research center of their choosing in the United States.

"The selected fellows are some of the brightest, rising stars in the field of astronomy and astrophysics," said Paul Hertz, director of Astrophysics at NASA Headquarters, Washington. "We look forward to the exciting discoveries they make that further our understanding of the universe."

Participants in the Einstein Fellows program conduct research broadly related to the mission of NASA's Physics of the Cosmos (PCOS) Program, which aims to expand our knowledge of the origin, evolution, and fate of the universe. The PCOS Program consists of a suite of operating science missions and possible future missions that focus on specific aspects of these questions.

"We are very pleased to welcome this talented group of young scientists as the incoming Einstein Fellows," said Belinda Wilkes, Director of the Chandra X-ray Center at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory that manages the Einstein Fellows program for NASA. "Their research will advance the quest to better understand the physics of the cosmos in a variety of directions."

The 13 new Einstein Fellows in alphabetical order and their host institutions are:
