09 Sep 2015

Professor Bob Abraham has been elected  as a Fellow of RSC for his seminal work on high-z galaxies and his innovative observational techniques.

The following is the citation:

Roberto Abraham has made important contributions to astrophysics though his work on galaxy
morphology and classification. His pioneering work on faint galaxies in the distant Universe revealed the existence of massive evolved galaxies in the distant Universe, which was a major surprise. A particular hallmark of his research is the manner in which he opens up new vistas in parameter space by developing highly innovative astronomical techniques and instruments.
Congratulations, Bob!
