David Sing, who heads the largest Hubble research program on exoplanets, will hold appointments in two departments within the Krieger School.

Sing is the university’s 35th Bloomberg Distinguished Professor, taking his place among an interdisciplinary group of scholars who are working to address global challenges and teach the next generation. The program is backed by a $350 million gift from Johns Hopkins alum, philanthropist, and three-term New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

“Dr. Sing has established himself as a leader of the vanguard in exoplanet research,” says Beverly Wendland, dean of the Krieger School. “We expect the new directions his discoveries will take at Johns Hopkins will add a great deal to the local and global community of scholars.”
