2015 Keto Award


Gongjie Li (Harvard, 2015) the 2015 Eric Keto Prize for Graduate Students in Theoretical Astrophysics for her thesis "Long-Term Dynamics of High Mass Ratio Multiples."

Before entering the PhD program at Harvard, Giongie ranked first among the astrophysics undergrads in her 2010 class at Caltech.

Over the past four years, Gongjie was the lead author on an unusually large and diverse set of original papers, one of which is path breaking.

Dr. Li accepted a prestigious Harvard Junior Fellowship starting in July 2015—after turning down Einstein and Hubble Fellowships, the Spitzer fellowship, and the KIPAC fellowship at Stanford.
