Professor James Stone selected as 2009 Jefferson Science Fellow

September 11, 2009

Physics Professor James Stone was selected as a Jefferson Science Fellow for the year 2009. The prestigious Jefferson Science Fellowships have been established to create opportunities for substantial engagement of tenured scientists and engineers from U.S. academic institutions in the work of the State Department. One can read about Jefferson Science Fellows at the National Academies website. Biographies and profiles of the Fellows can be found here.

It is also worth noting that Boston University Physics Professor Michael El-Batanouny was selected as Jefferson Science Fellow for the year 2008. It is quite an honor for all of us to have two faculty from the same university, indeed from the same department, being awarded the Jefferson Science Fellowship in two years back to back.
