Nigel Boston and Timo Seppalianen have been named Simons Fellows for 2015-16.
The fellowship covers half of a sabbatical year, the complete list can be found at http://go.wisc.edu/g703bp
The Fellows Programs provide funds to faculty for up to a semester long research leave from classroom teaching and administrative obligations. Such leaves can increase creativity and provide intellectual stimulation. The goal of the Simons Fellows Program is to make it easier to take such leaves, or to extend sabbatical leaves by an extra half year.
