Graduate student Alex Iacchetta receives NASA fellowship

Alex Iacchetta, a Ph.D. student working with James Fienup, the Robert E. Hopkins Professor of Optics, has received a 2014 NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship for his proposal, "Astro-Interferometric Modeling and Spatio-Spectral Reconstruction," in concert with activities at the Goddard Space Flight Center. The fellowship, worth about $68,000 a year when stipend and various allowances are included, is for one year, renewable for an additional two years. Kudos to Professor Fienup as well, for a string of outstanding student accomplishments coming out of his lab.
