Inaugural Excellence in Science Research Awards announced

Wednesday, September 22, 2021

Congratulations to Professor Avery Broderick for being selected as one of the first recipients for the new Faculty of Science Excellence in Science Research Award!

This award was established by the Faculty of Science’s Associate Dean of Research, alongside the Science Faculty Awards Committee to recognize outstanding research accomplishments by Science’s faculty members. Each year, one tenure-track and two tenured faculty members will be recognized. It is our hope that these awards will significantly increase the research profile of faculty members in Science, and for those who receive them, strengthen subsequent nominations for external research awards.

Broderick hunts for clues to gravity's nature in the vicinity of its most extreme manifestations – black holes. These are encoded on the night sky and revealed by the Event Horizon Telescope, which captures the astrophysical dramas unfolding on gravity's stage.

“I'm honored by this recognition, which is especially meaningful given that it originates from my colleagues,” says Broderick. “This award will support my group's work on developing the instruments that will follow the Event Horizon Telescope, revealing black holes in ever greater detail.”

Congratulations to Professor Avery Broderick!
