Professor Ue-Li Pen awarded 2022 Class of Fellows to the Royal Society of Canada


Ue-Li Pen is professor in the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (CITA) and a theoretical astrophysicist whose work often extends beyond traditional boundaries. He has contributed to the rapidly growing field of 21-cm cosmology, culminating in Canada’s preeminent astronomical achievements of the last decade, the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) and CHIME-Fast Radio Burst (FRB) experiments. He has also contributed to new dedicated telescopes in China, South Africa and Brazil.

“In the modern era where much of astrophysics operates in giant collaborations,” says Pen, “my niche has been to explore short term innovative initiatives with large growth potential.

“I am honored to receive this award,” he says, “made possible by the nurturing environment at my University and the outstanding people I have worked with.”
