Matthew Browning recipient of the Bishop Award

Browning recognized for his research work.

The Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics, a nationally-supported research centre hosted by the University of Toronto, recognized one of its young researchers, Matthew Browning, for outstanding research done during his time at CITA.

Browning was awarded the Jeffrey L. Bishop Fellowship, granted every two years. It is an award for excellence in research in astrophysical dynamics in particular, and is named after one of CITA's first postdoctoral fellows, who died in an automobile accident shortly after leaving the Institute. The Fellowship is partly funded by a gift from his Mother, Mrs. Muriel Simmons, and matched by CITA.
