Emily Riehl, an associate professor in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, is among 38 mathematicians and 10 theoretical physicists who have been awarded 2022 Simons Fellowships. The program, funded by the Simons Foundation, extends academic leaves from one term to a full year, enabling recipients to focus solely on research for the long periods often necessary for significant advances.
Riehl's area of study is category theory. In 2020, she was honored by Johns Hopkins with the President's Frontier Award in recognition of her groundbreaking work and promise as a future leader in her field.
The Simons Foundation, co-founded in 1994 in New York City by Jim and Marilyn Simons, exists to support basic—or discovery-driven—scientific research undertaken in the pursuit of understanding the phenomena of our world.
