Congratulations to Assistant Professors Lei Chen (math), Alicia Koll├ír (physics) and Pratyush Tiwary (chemistry and biochemistry/IPST), who received 2022 Sloan Research Fellowships from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. 118 of these two-year, $75,000 fellowships were awarded this year to early-career researchers in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field. 

Since the first Sloan Research Fellowships were awarded in 1955, 68 faculty members from UMD have received a Sloan Research Fellowship. A dozen CMNS faculty members have been awarded Sloan Research Fellowships since 2015.
