Professor Feryal Özel Wins Guggenheim Fellowship

The Guggenheim Foundation has awarded Astronomy/Steward Professor Feryal Özel a 2016 Guggenheim Fellowship. As the Guggenheim website says "Often characterized as “midcareer” awards, Guggenheim Fellowships are intended for men and women who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts." Dr ​Özel was the only Astrophysicist awarded in 2016, and one of only fifteen natural scientists.
