Lev Arzamasskiy, graduate student in the Department of Astrophysical Sciences, is the recipient of Princeton University’s Harold W. Dodds Fellowship. The selective award is given in recognition of his distinguished work in Astrophysical Sciences and it will fully fund his 5thyear of graduate study. His area of research interest is in kinetic plasma physics processes and their effect on collisionless astrophysical systems such as accretion disks and the solar wind. Matthew Kunz, Assistant Professor of Astrophysical Sciences, serves as research advisor for Mr. Arzamasskiy, who will graduate in 2020.
The Harold W. Dodds Fellowship was established in 1957 by an anonymous donor to honor Princeton’s 15thpresident, Harold Willis Dodds. The prestigious fellowship is awarded to select students each year, unrestricted by field of study, and provides tuition and stipend funding for the fellowship recipients.
