Dr. Felipe Feijoo Awarded Provost’s Postdoctoral Diversity Fellowship
Congratulations to postdoctoral fellow Dr. Felipe Feijoo, who has been awarded the Provost’s Postdoctoral Diversity Fellowship for the 2017 fiscal year.
Dr. Feijoo was selected from an applicant pool of 51 JHU postdoctoral scholars for this fellowship. He was selected based on his track record of excellence in research and leadership, as well as his commitment to improving the climate for diverse scholars.
This fellowship program, as described by the Office of the Provost in an announcement, “seeks to locate, promote, and nurture the outstanding work of diverse early career postdoctoral scholars at Johns Hopkins University. The program will prepare participants for faculty positions at Johns Hopkins or elsewhere, particularly in fields where there are at present fewer women or members of underrepresented minorities. A successful nominee will be someone with potential for both a successful fellowship and a possible future tenure-track or research faculty appointment at Johns Hopkins.”
Dr. Feijoo is currently working with Professor Sauleh Siddiqui with the research goal of developing practical, cost effective and sustainable ways to implement and deploy renewable energy.
