Adele Plunkett, PhD ‘15, is the 2015 recipient of the the Robert L. Brown Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award given by the The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and Associated Universities, Inc. (AUI).

The award consists of a $1,000 honorarium, a framed certificate, and an invitation to give a colloquium at the NRAO in Charlottesville, VA.

The award is given each year to a recent recipient of a doctoral degree “that is substantially based on new observational data obtained at any NRAO facility and considered to be of an exceptionally high scientific standard.”
