Beth Klein awarded the American Physical Society's M. Hildred Blewett Fellowship

Dr. Beth Klein has been awarded the American Physical Society's M. Hildred Blewett Fellowship.  Dr. Klein, a junior development engineer in the Astronomy Division, studies polluted white dwarf stars, elemental compositions of extrasolar planetesimals, formation and evolution of rocky planets and exoplanets, and high-resolution spectroscopy and imaging.

The fellowship was established to enable women to return to physics research careers after having had to interrupt those careers. This award was established from a generous bequest from M. Hildred Blewett, an accelerator physicist who died in 2004. Hildred Blewett was passionate about physics and wanted to help women overcome obstacles by establishing the fellowship.

Dr. Klein's website is available here.
