APS Fellows Nominated by DAP  

Filter by Year:

Diehl, H Thomas [2017]
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
Citation: For outstanding leadership of Dark Energy Survey operations, laying the foundation for cutting-edge dark energy science.

Hooper, Dan [2017]
Citation: For pursuing the identity of dark matter by combining careful analysis of observational data with theoretical ideas from both particle physics and astrophysics.

Huterer, Dragan [2017]
University of Michigan
Citation: For contributions to early universe theory and for seminal efforts to develop robust empirical tests of dark energy from extragalactic survey data, including the cosmic microwave background radiation.

May, Morgan [2017]
Brookhaven National Laboratory
Citation: For important contributions to techniques for constraining cosmological dark energy parameters through weak lensing, especially the use of novel lensing statistics; and for initiating and leading the astrophysics and cosmology program at Brookhaven National Laboratory.

Mukherjee, Reshmi [2017]
Barnard College, Columbia University
Citation: For advancing multifrequency strategies for the identification of gamma-ray sources and contributing significant leadership in blazar studies between the GeV and TeV gamma-ray bands.

Musser, James Alan [2017]
Indiana University
Citation: For sustained scientific leadership and observational discoveries in the fields of astroparticle and neutrino physics: underground, on balloons, and at beam lines.

Schwartz, Daniel [2017]
Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
Citation: For contributions to X-ray astronomy: measurement of the spectrum and isotropy of the diffuse cosmic background; identification of discrete sources with HEAO-1; contributions to the development, calibration and operation of the Chandra X-ray Observatory; and the study of relativistic X-ray jets.

Suntzeff, Nicholas B [2017]
Texas A&M University
Citation: For essential contributions and leadership in observational cosmology and astrophysics; investigations into the phenomenology of type 1-a supernovae laid the groundwork for the discovery of dark energy; and for cofounding one of the two teams that made this discovery.

Wechsler, Risa [2017]
Stanford University
Citation: For innovation, insight, and attention to detail in understanding galaxy formation and evolution though combining large simulations and surveys; for leadership in large survey projects; and for mentorship of younger scientists.

Wyse, Rosemary [2017]
Johns Hopkins University
Citation: For pioneering contributions to the field of galactic archaeology and near-field cosmology.
