Congratulations to Rouven Essig for winning a Sloan Fellowship  
Assistant Professor Rouven Essig is the recipient of a 2013 Sloan Fellowship. These two-year fellowships were awarded this year to 126 researchers in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field. The fellowships are in seven scientific fields: chemistry, computer science, economics, mathematics, evolutionary and computational molecular biology, neuroscience, and physics. This year 23 of the awards were in Physics.

Rouven received his Ph.D. in 2008 from Rutgers University and joined the Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics and our Department in 2011. He is a theoretical particle physicist, but often works closely with experimentalists to address open research questions at the cosmic, intensity, and energy frontiers. His goals are to develop the theoretical implications of the data being collected at dark matter detection experiments, at high-intensity beam experiments, and at the Large Hadron Collider and to generate new ideas for experiments that can further our understanding of the fundamental constituents of Nature.

In 2012 Rouven was the recipient of a Department of Energy Early Career Award. He is co-spokesperson of the A' Experiment (APEX) at Jefferson Laboratory. He is also a member of the Heavy Photon Search Collaboration, and he is an Affiliated Scientist with the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope.
