Professors Jinho Baik (above left) and Michael Zieve (above right) are two of the 37 recipients of 2016 Simons Fellowships, joining an elite group of faculty at schools including Berkeley, MIT, Princeton, and Stanford. These fellowships provide funds enabling faculty to take a semester long leave from classroom teaching and administrative obligations, in order to focus their efforts on doing research with significant scientific impact.  The Simons Fellowships are provided by the Simons Foundation.
