UA faculty members Matthias Morzfeld and Eduardo Rozo were among the 126 researchers nationwide awarded 2016 Sloan Research Fellowships, awards granted to early-career researchers who maintain distinguished performance and have the potential to make substantial contributions to their respective fields.
Morzfeld’s research focuses on applied and computational mathematics. He regularly collaborates with colleagues in atmospheric sciences and geophysics, and is currently working to develop new algorithms for more accurate weather forecasting.
Rozo, an experimental cosmologist, is interested in the origin and evolution of the universe. In particular, he studies dark energy, the little-understood substance that drives the accelerated expansion of the universe.
