Michael Liu Wins Hubble Fellowship
Dr. Michael Liu, the current Beatrice Watson Parrent
fellow at the IfA, has been awarded a Hubble Postdoctoral Fellowship. Inaugurated
in 1990 by NASA and the Space Telescope Science Institute, the Hubble Fellowship
Program has become very prestigious in the international astronomical community
as a result of its exceptionally high standards.
Hubble fellows take appointments at U.S. host institutions
of their choice to pursue independent research that is broadly related to the
scientific mission of the Hubble Space Telescope. We are pleased that Dr. Liu
will be staying at the IfA for his fellowship in 2003. He is the fifth Hubble
fellow hosted by the IfA.
