As part of the fellowship, the institute founds an official focus group, made up of the fellow, fellow’s host at the institute and a student or postdoc, to conduct research on an innovative, high-risk scientific topic.
The fellowship officially kicked off with a symposium. In his talk, Kronfeld discussed how he and his group could apply effective field theories to new problems for which lattice QCD calculations can provide key input.
