Congratulations to Dr Chung-Chi Lee (Center Research Fellow) for being awarded the Newton International Fellowship to carry out research at DAMTP in University of Cambridge.
Dr Chung-Chi Lee (Center Research Fellow) has been awarded the Newton International Fellowship to carry out research at DAMTP in University of Cambridge.
This Fellowship, run by the British Academy, the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Royal Society, is an international postdoctoral award, and provides around 40 junior researchers every year from all over the world in all disciplines of the the sciences and humanities. The Newton Fellowship brings the best young scientists to establish and enhance the connections between the researchers' home countries and the UK. The Newton Fellows are not only funded to work in the UK for two years but also eligible to apply for the support to their activities, which will maintain links with the UK. Dr. Lee's UK sponsor, Prof John D. Barrow at University of Cambridge, is one of the top cosmologists, theoretical physicists, and mathematicians in the world. They plan to explore the alternative gravitational theories of the Einstein’s theory of General Relativity to understand Dark Energy (68% of the Universe), which is one of the greatest puzzles in physics. Dr Chung-Chi Lee has been in National Center for Theoretical Sciences as a postdoctoral research fellow since 2014, who received his phD degree from Department of Physics in National Tsing-Hua University in 2013.
