Graduate Student, Lea Marcotulli, Awarded NASA Hubble Fellowship

February 9, 2021

Please join me in congratulating Lea Marcotulli for earning a NASA Hubble Fellowship. Open to astrophysicists around the world within three years of earning their PhD, this is among the most prestigious prize fellowships available to young astrophysicists. This year, there were 24 fellowships awarded, and Lea will be taking hers to work at Yale. Her scholarship is focused on the study of Active Galactic Nuclei. Using observational tools spanning the electromagnetic spectrum, she studies the accreting supermassive blackholes at the center of these galaxies. This is a great honor for Lea and a testament to her hard work, talent, and creativity.
