Seniors Katherine Xiang and Sydney Timmerman, and graduate student Gabriela Sato-Polito, are recipients of National Science Foundation graduate fellowships.
Gabriela is working with Prof. Kamionkowski on the intersection between theoretical and observational cosmology. She is interested in testing the standard model of cosmology in new regimes and in the prospect of exploring the high-redshift Universe with line-intensity mapping.
Katherine worked in Prof. Reich’s lab to study contractile forces exerted by cells on their substrates. She is also working with our Davis Fellow Dr. Nataf and Prof. Zakamska to identify buckling barred galaxies. She has received Dean’s Undergraduate Research Award for her work.
