Professor Mona Jarrahi has been named a 2014 Kavli Fellow by the National Academy of Sciences. The Kavli fellows program honors young scientists who are considered leaders in their fields and have made significant contributions to science. Fellows are invited to attend, present and network at U.S. and international Kavli Frontiers of Science symposia, at which some of the world’s brightest young scientists convene to share the exciting research taking place in their fields. Professor Jarrahi was invited to attend the 14th Japanese-American Frontiers of Science Symposium held in Tokyo this year, December 4 to7.
About the Kavli Fellow Program:
Kavli fellows are selected by the advisory board of The Kavli Foundation and members of the National Academy of Sciences from young researchers who have already made recognized contributions to science, including recipients of major national fellowships and awards and who have been identified as future leaders in science. More than 150 Kavli fellows have been elected into the NAS and 10 have been awarded Nobel Prizes.
