APS Fellows Nominated by DAP  

Filter by Year:

Bean, Rachel [2016]
Cornell University
Citation: For contributions to the understanding of dark energy, and her cosmological observations to constrain physics beyond the Standard Model of physics.

Bell, Nicole [2016]
University of Melbourne
Citation: For fundamental contributions regarding the interface of astrophysics and particle physics, particularly in neutrino astrophysics and cosmology, and dark matter phenomenology.

Chung, Daniel [2016]
University of Wisconsin - Madison
Citation: For broad contributions to the interface of high energy theory and cosmology.

Coutu, Stéphane [2016]
Pennsylvania State University
Citation: For his pioneering contributions to particle astrophysics, spanning the energy range from direct measurements to the highest energy particles found in nature.

Donahue, Megan [2016]
Michigan State University
Citation: For advanced cosmological observations and analyses of galaxy clusters, and of the relationship between the thermodynamic state of circumgalactic gas around massive galaxies, the triggering of active galactic nucleus feedback, and the regulation of star formation in galaxies.

Feldman, Hume A. [2016]
University of Kansas
Citation: For his contributions to cosmology, particularly cosmological perturbations, the statistical and dynamical properties of the large scale structure of the universe, the innovative treatment of cosmic peculiar velocity fields, and the imposition of constraints on cosmological parameters.

Gondolo, Paolo [2016]
University of Utah
Citation: For outstanding theoretical contributions to dark matter research, particularly direct and indirect dark matter searches.

Hornschemeier, Ann [2016]
National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Space Flight Center
Citation: For outstanding contributions to the understanding of physics and the evolution of X-ray binaries in other galaxies.

Keating, Brian [2016]
University of California, San Diego
Citation: For his role in designing the Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization (BICEP) experiment to search for the unique cosmic microwave background polarization pattern predicted by models of inflationary cosmology, and his founding of the POLARBEAR experiment, which produced the first measurements of both the B-mode power spectrum of the cosmic microwave background, and the detection of the gravitational lensing deflection power spectrum from the cosmic microwave background's polarization.

Kelley, Richard L. [2016]
National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Space Flight Center
Citation: For exceptional contributions to the development of high-resolution cryogenic X-ray spectrometers, and outstanding leadership of Astro-H Soft X-ray Spectrometer team research.

Lee, Adrian [2016]
University of California, Berkeley
Citation: For original work in developing innovative detector systems and Instituterumentation to enable increasingly precise observations of the cosmic microwave background.

Mostafá, Miguel [2016]
Pennsylvania State University
Citation: For his participation in the design, development, construction, and operation of the Pierre Auger Observatory and High Altitude Water Cherenkov Observatory, for his contribution to the Auger hybrid reconstruction and derived measurements of composition, and for his leadership of the Auger analysis group dedicated to the search of the sources of the highest energy cosmic rays.

Peiris, Hiranya [2016]
University College London
Citation: For significant contributions to the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe project, Planck analyses, and the application of advanced statistical techniques to a wide range of astronomical data.

Pryke, Clement [2016]
University of Minnesota
Citation: For groundbreaking measurement and data analyses of the polarization of cosmic microwave background radiation, and for using the data to provide strong constraints on the composition and initial conditions of the early universe.
