January 14, 2014

Penn Provost Vincent Price and Vice Provost for Faculty Anita Allen are pleased to announce the appointment of the sixth cohort of Penn Fellows.

The Penn Fellows program, begun in 2009, provides leadership development to select mid-career faculty members at Penn. It includes opportunities to build cross-campus alliances, meet distinguished academic leaders, think strategically about universities and university governance, and consult with Penn’s senior administrators.

The 2014 Penn Fellows from Penn Arts and Sciences are:

Justin Khoury, Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy, works at the intersection of particle physics and cosmology, especially alternative theories of the early universe designed to address traditional problems of “big bang” cosmology.

Emilio Parrado, Professor of Sociology, studies migration within and across countries, including immigrant adaptation, international migration, and social and demographic change in Latin America.

Adriana Petryna, Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn Term Professor of Anthropology, studies the social and political dimensions of science and medicine in the United States and Eastern Europe.
