Adam Nahum (Research Fellow in the Sciences) has been awarded the fellowship for his research in quantum entanglement and random geometry.

Ohad Kammar (Career Development Fellow in Computer Science) describes his research as ‘effectful theories of programming languages: models, abstractions, validation’. He will hold his fellowship at the University of Edinburgh when he leaves Balliol at the end of this year. 

The Royal Society’s URF scheme aims ‘to provide outstanding early career scientists, who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields, with the opportunity to build an independent research career’. The awards are made annually and the scheme is extremely competitive. The full list of appointments is here.
