Professor Viviana Acquaviva (Physics) is one of seven researchers selected for the Simons Foundation’s first class of Pivot Fellows. The program will support the seven accomplished researchers as they apply their talent and expertise to a new field in mathematics or the natural sciences. Each fellow will receive support for one year of training in their new field under a mentor, followed by the opportunity to apply for up to three years of research funding in the new discipline. Professor Acquaviva is an astrophysicist using data science techniques to study the universe, and she will be a Climate Scientist in training under the new program.
