APS Fellow Archive

The APS Fellow Archive is an historic record of every APS Fellow, from 1921 to the present. The details contained in the archive are intended to document an individual's institutional affiliation at the time of their election to Fellowship, and is not updated to reflect current information. For a current listing of an APS Fellow who is still an active member, or to search your institution for current APS Fellows, please use the APS Member Directory. For questions about the Fellows Archive, please contact Janay Oliver, APS Membership and Fellowship Specialist, at fellowship@aps.org.

Nominated by: Division of Astrophysics

Pi, So-Young [2014]
Boston University
Citation: For her seminal contributions to the phenomenon of density fluctuations in theories of cosmic inflation.
Nominated by: Division of Astrophysics

Schlegel, David J. [2014]
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
