This year, we are pleased that two scientists related to the SDSS collaboration have been recognized for their wide contributions to astronomical research.
Professor Meg Urry, of Yale University, has served on the Advisory Committee for SDSS-III and SDSS-IV. Her research focuses of supermassive black holes, and she is known, among other things, for her work that demonstrates Active Galactic Nuclei are a common phase in galaxy evolution.
Dr. Meg Urry of Yale University
Professor Timothy Heckman, of John Hopkins University, has also served on the Advisory Committee for SDSS, as well as being an Astrophysical Research Consortium Board member from 1995 to 2000. His research touches upon the ways that supermassive black holes effect their host galaxies.
Dr. Timothy Heckman, Johns Hopkins University
Congratulations to both Timothy and Meg on their achievements!
