Pospelov named APS Fellow

Maxim Pospelov of the School of Physics and Astronomy has been named a 2022 fellow of the American Physical Society (APS).

Pospelov was cited “for outstanding contributions to astroparticle physics, including phenomenological approaches to dark matter and its detection, and groundbreaking work on the simplest extensions of the Standard Model with dark matter.” He was nominated for fellowship by the Division of Particles and Fields.

Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the Society membership is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow in the American Physical Society. The addition of Pospelov to this group, brings the total number of APS Fellows in the current faculty of the School to 43.
