On Wednesday, Nov. 26, Fermilab scientist Andreas Kronfeld was publicly awarded the Hans Fischer Senior Fellowship at the Technical University of Munich Institute for Advanced Study.

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.
