Steve Giddings has been selected as one of the first Simons Fellows in Theoretical Physics by The Simons Foundation. He will receive one of the 77 fellowships awarded to outstanding mathematicians and theoretical physicists in this inaugural year of the program. The program extends academic leaves, enabling recipients to focus solely on research for the long periods often necessary for significant advances. The award is based on the applicant's scientific accomplishment in the five-year period preceding the application and on a judgment of the potential impact of the leave period.
