Experts in high energy physics, marine science to receive $50,000 awards

Two assistant professors who recently joined Rutgers are already making names for themselves in their fields, whether by helping to explain the makeup of mysterious dark matter in the universe or examining how climate-induced changes to fish migration patterns disrupt commercial and recreational fishing.

One prestigious organization that recognizes the early successes and future potential of these young faculty members is the Sloan Foundation, which this week is awarding each of them $50,000 fellowships to enhance their research programs.

The professors are John Paul Chou in the Department of Physics and Astronomy,School of Arts and Sciences, and Malin Pinsky, in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Natural Resources, School of Environmental and Biological Sciences. Pinsky is also affiliated with the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences.
