Promising early-career scholars in economics, physics, and computer science honored

Six University of Chicago researchers have earned prestigious Sloan Research Fellowships, which recognize early-career scholars’ potential to make substantial contributions to their fields.

This year’s UChicago winners range from an astrophysicist studying the extreme conditions in space to an economist researching the effects of social insurance and public assistance programs to a computer scientist working on human-centered AI and natural language processing.

Awarded since 1955 to the brightest young scientists across the United States and Canada, the two-year Sloan Fellowships are one of the most competitive and prestigious awards available to early-career researchers. This year’s winners, announced Feb. 15, will receive two-year fellowships in the amount of $75,000 to further their innovative research.
