Rishidev Chaudhuri, assistant professor with a joint appointment between the Department of Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior, College of Biological Sciences and the Department of Mathematics, College of Letters and Science was one of two faculty members at the University of California, Davis, named as 2021 Sloan Research Fellow by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Considered one of the most prestigious fellowships given to young researchers, the Sloan fellowship includes $75,000 over two years to support the fellow’s research.
“A Sloan Research Fellow is a rising star, plain and simple,” said Adam F. Falk, president of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, in a statement announcing this year’s fellowships. “To receive a fellowship is to be told by the scientific community that your achievements as a young scholar are already driving the research frontier.”
