Physicist Keefe Mitman, selected as an Einstein Fellow in the prestigious NASA Hubble Fellowship Program, has chosen to do his research at Cornell University, working with Nils Deppe, assistant professor of physics in the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S).

Keefe Mitman

The Hubble Fellowship Program enables outstanding postdoctoral scientists to pursue independent research in any area of NASA astrophysics at a U.S. institution of their choice; each fellowship provides the awardee up to three years of support.
Mitman will continue his previous collaboration with Deppe and the Simulating eXtreme Spacetimes (SXS) Collaboration on improving gravitational wave models to aid with the LIGO-Virgo-Kagra Collaboration’s detection and characterization of compact binary encounters.
