Katherine Freese to Start as New Nordita Director in September 2014

Professor Katherine Freese of the University of Michigan will begin a three year term as Director of Nordita starting September 1, 2014. Professor Freese is an internationally recognized researcher working on a wide range of topics in theoretical astro-particle physics and cosmology. She received her PhD in Physics 1984 from the University of Chicago and held postdoctoral appointments at Harvard University, the Institute for Theoretical Physics at UC Santa Barbara, and UC Berkeley.

From 1987 to 1991 she was an Assistant Professor at MIT and then moved to the University of Michigan, where she is currently the George Eugene Uhlenbeck Professor of Physics. In 2012 she was awarded an honorary doctorate at Stockholm University and it was recently announced that she will receive a Grant for the International Recruitment of a Leading Researcher from Vetenskapsrådet for a total of 101 500 000 SEK over a period of 10 years. We congratulate her on this well-deserved recognition and wish her every success during her time at Nordita.

Outgoing Nordita Director Larus Thorlacius will be returning to his position as Professor of Physics at the University of Iceland but will continue to spend part of his time in Stockholm as a Guest Professor of Theoretical Physics at Stockholm University.
