Earlier this year, the Graduate School named the winners of the Porter Ogden Jacobus Fellowship, Princeton University's top honor for graduate students.
The fellows are Adam Lerner in philosophy, Alexander "Sasha" Philippov in astrophysical sciences, Henry Shapiro in history and Neereja Sundaresan in electrical engineering. The fellowships are awarded to one Ph.D. student in each of the four divisions (humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering) whose work has exhibited the highest scholarly excellence, and they support the students' final year of study at Princeton. The fellows were recognized at Alumni Day, Saturday Feb. 25.
In the videos below, the fellows and their advisers discuss the students' research.
