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.
