2019 Simons Fellows

Submitted by Rose Choi on March 18, 2019 - 2:49pm

Tatiana Toro is a 2019 Simons Fellow. The Simons Foundation’s fellowship program, which began in 2012, is designed to extend and thereby make sabbatical research leaves more productive, recognizing that sabbatical research leaves from classroom teaching and administrative obligations can provide strong intellectual stimulation and lead to increased creativity and productivity in research. Tatiana was one of the inaugural Simons Fellows seven years ago, followed in subsequent years by Hart Smith, Gunther Uhlmann, Sándor Kovács, Chris Hoffman, Julia Pevtsova, and Max Lieblich. Departmental alum Matthew Kahle, a professor at the Ohio State University who received his PhD from UW in 2007, is also a 2019 Simons Fellow.
