A graduate of Notre Dame University in Astronomy and Physics, receives the prestigious NASA Hubble Fellowship for the year 2022 – Al-Binaa Newspaper

It’s the Hubble program that not only conjures up ideas about space and stunning images of the galaxy, but includes more, including the NASA Hubble Fellowship Program (NHFP), which supports promising postdoctoral scientists to pursue independent research that contributes to the study of NASA astrophysics.

Elias Aidi, a graduate of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences at Notre Dame University in 2014, continued his education through the joint master’s program in astrophysics with Saint Joseph University; A postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Physics and Astronomy in the College of Natural Sciences at Michigan State University, he is one of a select group of 24 young scientists worldwide to be awarded the prestigious 2022 NASA Hubble Fellowship.

Dr. Aidi recently led a study that collected observations from several NASA missions, which provided the first direct observational evidence that shocks can indeed drive a significant portion of the luminosity of a stellar explosion, perhaps exceeding emissions from thermonuclear reactions.

In addition to his cutting edge research, Dr. Elias Aidi dedicates time to organizing awareness activities for the local community, where he presents approximately 12 discussions annually to schoolchildren, their families, and others.

“I am extremely humbled and honored to receive this prestigious fellowship, and I am very excited to continue my research at Michigan State University as a NASA Hubble Fellow,” said Aidi.

Professor Stephen Ziv, Chair of the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics, said: “The Hubble Fellowship is the most prestigious post-doctoral fellowship in astronomy and astrophysics, and it is great to see Dr. Aidi receive such recognition for his hard work and results.”

Laura Shumuk, a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, with whom Aidi works, considered that he is not only a dynamic researcher, but “works hard to evolve and reach a better common place in astrophysics.”

It should be noted that Dr. Aidi has also created a website with more than 5,000 followers, concerned with astronomy in his mother tongue, i.e. the Arabic language, which is intended for audiences in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
