Joanna Kyriluk receives 2019 PECASE Award  

Joanna Kiryluk received the 2019 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the highest honor bestowed by the US government to outstanding scientists. The award acknowledges the contributions of Joanna to the advancement of science, technology, education, and mathematics (STEM) education and to community service as demonstrated through scientific leadership, public education, and community outreach.

Joanna's research focuses on high energy neutrinos measured with the IceCube observatory at the South Pole, which is the largest underground neutrino detector in the world. Seeking to find the origins of the most powerful cosmic accelerators in the Universe, her work will confirm or refute theory predictions for astrophysical neutrino sources and cosmic acceleration mechanisms. Joanna is also in educational and outreach work in collaboration with the Stony Brook University WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) Program.
