Congratulation to Brain Babler for receiving the L&S mid-career academic staff award! The award is granted to individuals who demonstrate outstanding performance, leadership and service, and substantial professional competency and promise of continuing contributions.

Over the last 25 years Brian has been advancing astronomical research in the area of observational astrophysics through the creation, calibration and analysis of large astronomical survey data sets across a broad range of wavelengths.  His contributions have been crucial for the success of several major international astronomical projects: HERITAGE, GLIMPSE, GALFA-HI, 21-SPONGE, WHAM.  He has also played an important role in supporting major instrumentation projects housed by the Department such as HPOL, WISP, ST5000, WUPPE and GHRS for the Hubble Space Telescope.
