Graduate Student Justin Ellis receives Einstein Fellowship

Posted by Laura Nuttall on February 26, 2014


Justin Ellis, a graduate student in the Leonard E. Parker Center for Gravitational, Cosmology and Astrophysics, has fought off fierce competition to be awarded one of only twelve 2014 Einstein Fellowships. Justin will take this prestigious award with him to JPL this fall, where he will continue his research in detecting gravitational waves with pulsar timing arrays.

"I was extremely excited and never thought I would get this prestigious award" Justin exclaimed. A total of 185 applications were received for just twelve available fellowships. He will be joining researchers at JPL which this year will become the largest data-analysis group in NANOGrav.

Congratulations Justin!
