TGF Fellows 2019

Valeriya Korol, a PhD candidate from Leiden Observatory, the Netherlands, will be conducting her postdoctoral research on binary white dwarfs and gravitational waves. “I am honoured to have been awarded such a prestigious fellowship. It will be a huge support for my personal career and for promoting future multi-messenger studies with my favourite space mission, LISA. The Gruber Fellowship will also allow me to develop my own outreach project using the sounds of gravitational waves, which will be open access for the public. Finally, the fellowship will give me the means to support early career scientists in the gravitational wave field.

Martin Turbet, who received his PhD in 2018 from the Sorbonne, France, is currently researching 3D global climate modelling of Earth-like planets. “I am extremely grateful to the Gruber Foundation and honoured to have the privilege of being one of the recipients of this fellowship. Since the beginning of my PhD thesis, I, like many other scientists, have often doubted the validity and interest of my research. This prestigious fellowship will give me the confidence and above all the motivation to continue to contribute as positively as possible in my research fields.
