Professor Paul Ginsparg Honored with Simons Fellowship

Professor Paul Ginsparg (Information Science and Physics) has recently received a Simons Fellowship award in Physics. The Simons Foundations Fellows Program is designed to fund faculty research leaves, giving Fellows a break from classroom teaching and administrative obligations, in order to focus on research. Professor Ginsparg joins an esteemed list of colleagues who have been awarded this honor in past years. The complete list of 2014 Fellows will be released later this spring.

Professor Ginsparg plans to use the fellowship award for the first half of his sabbatical during the spring semester of 2015, with invitations for month-long visits to the Santa Fe Institute (Santa Fe, NM), the Ecole Normale Superieur (Paris),the Perimeter Institute (Waterloo, Ont), and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies (Cambridge, MA). His research will continue to involve  problems at the boundary between theoretical physics and information science.

The Simons Foundation was founded by Jim and Marilyn Simons with the goal of advancing research in mathematics and the sciences, particularly theoretical physics and theoretical computer science. The Foundation's programs aim to help promote a deeper understanding of the world. The Simons Foundation program for Mathematics and Physical Sciences began awarding grants and fellowships in 2010.
