Congratulations to Brice Menard on winning the Johns Hopkins University President’s Frontier Award

On February 13, IDIES member Brice Menard was awarded the President’s Frontier Award in recognition of his exceptional ability to develop new and potentially far-reaching approaches to big data sets. Brice uses information that is widely available to researchers, but his imagination and ingenuity lead to striking results, such as new ways to measure distances across the universe and a fresh understanding of its chemical evolution. The award includes $250,000 to support his work analyzing very large astronomical data sets to make new discoveries about our galaxy and the universe beyond.
