The UC Santa Barbara Physics Department would like to congratulate Professor Timothy Brandt on his fellowship from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
From the UCSB Current:
Every so often the work of an early career researcher becomes so important, it captures the attention of their professional peers. Recognizing these young “scholars of outstanding promise,” the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation awards Sloan Research Fellowships to support their future breakthroughs and careers as leaders in their fields.
This year, three of those 128 early-career innovators come from UC Santa Barbara.
“I congratulate Sung Soo Kim, Fedor Manin and Timothy Brandt on this exceptional honor,” said Pierre Wiltzius, dean of mathematical, physical and life sciences. “With these fellowships, they join a rarefied group of 125 other extraordinarily talented young scholars whose research shows great promise. I look forward to learning about the valuable discoveries these awards will support.”
“A Sloan Research Fellow is a rising star, plain and simple,” said Adam F. Falk, president of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. “To receive a fellowship is to be told by the scientific community that your achievements as a young scholar are already driving the research frontier.”
