Ph.D. Candidate Named Harvard Junior Fellow

Posted on: Feb. 24, 2019

Suraj Shankar, a Ph.D. candidate in physics, has accepted a Junior Fellowship from Harvard University’s Society of Fellows. Upon graduating in May, he may be Syracuse’s first alumnus to join the prestigious society, entitling him to lifetime membership. Only one or two physicists become Junior Fellows each year—five have won The Nobel Prize in Physics. Shankar’s doctoral advisor is Professor M. Cristina Marchetti.
