APS Fellows Nominated by DAP  

Filter by Year:


Baudis, Laura [2015]
University of Zurich
Citation: For leadership and outstanding contributions to experimental searches for astrophysical dark matter by direct detection and for double beta decay.


Diehl, Roland [2015]
Max Planck Institute
Citation: For pioneering contributions to astrophysics, including seminal observations of gamma-ray lines from cosmic radioactivities, the origins of cosmic rays, and development of methods for the analysis of measurements made with gamma-ray telescopes.


Donato, Fiorenza [2015]
Turin University, Italy
Citation: For extensive ground breaking contributions in astro particle physics and indirect dark matter searches.


Finkbeiner, Douglas [2015]
Harvard University
Citation: For work as one of the world’s leading practitioners of “big data” science, exploiting the entire electromagnetic spectrum, from radio waves to gamma rays, with rigorous attention to the underlying physics of what are often complex phenomena.


Funk, Stefan [2015]
University Erlangen Nuernberg
Citation: For scientific contributions and effective leadership in high-energy gamma-ray astrophysics.


Jain, Bhuvnesh [2015]
University of Pennsylvania
Citation: For groundbreaking work in astrophysics and cosmology including the areas of theoretical modeling of cosmological phenomena, measurement and interpretation of cosmological weak lensing, and the interface of gravity theories and experimental tests.


Komatsu, Eiichiro [2015]
Max Planck Institute
Citation: For pioneering use of the bispectrum to study the physics of the early universe and for playing a leading role in the analysis of WMAP data.


Loeb, Abraham [2015]
Harvard University
Citation: For seminal contributions to several challenging problems in theoretical astrophysics ranging from the emergence of structure formation at the earliest epochs, to the physics of the epoch of reionization, to the use of gamma-ray bursts as cosmic probes, to the use of microlensing to detect planets.


Madejski, Grzegorz [2015]
SLAC - National Accelerator Laboratory
Citation: For insightful research over a thirty year career on relativistic jets and rich clusters of galaxies, his effective contributions to many successful high energy astrophysics space missions, and leadership in the community.


Ozel, Feryal [2015]
University of Arizona
Citation: For pathbreaking theoretical and observational contributions to understanding the behavior of high energy astrophysical systems in the universe, including neutron stars, magnetars and black holes; and for leadership in the astrophysics community.


Ransom, Scott [2015]
National Radio Astronomy Observatory
Citation: For contributions to the study of radio pulsars, including the measurement of pulsar masses that have constrained the equation of state of ultradense matter, the discovery of many millisecond and binary pulsars, and development of key pulsar algorithms.


Slane, Patrick [2015]
Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
Citation: For significant contributions to the physics of supernova remnants, in particular for using deep images and spectra, over many wavebands, to understand the interaction of hot gas, interstellar material, pulsar wind nebulae, and cosmic ray acceleration within the remnants.


Thompson, Rodger [2015]
University of Arizona
Citation: For work in infrared instrumentation and studies of stellar nucleosynthesis, star formation, and active galactic nuclei; his pivotal role as principal investigator for NICMOS on the Hubble Space telescope; and his use of that instrument to pursue high redshift cosmology, AGNs, and star formation.


Wandelt, Benjamin [2015]
Pierre and Marie Curie University
Citation: For a leading role in the development of the algorithms and tools used in the analysis and interpretation of cosmic microwave background data and for his development of novel approaches to cosmological analyses.
