Assistant Professor of Physics, Jonathan Pober, has received the Henry Merritt Wriston Fellowship for 2019.

The committee received a significant number of strong applications this year and Professor Pober stood out not only for his innovative teaching but also the range and originality of his scholarly accomplishments to date. The annual Wriston competition is one way the University recognizes young faculty who are fulfilling Brown's dual mission of excellence in both teaching and research. 

Professor Pober is an experimental astrophysicist. His research focuses on the history of the universe through observations of neutral hydrogen on cosmic scales. He develops ultrasensitive radio telescopes for his astronomical observation.
