Contributions of NASA’s Roman Technology Fellows
Tuesday 13 August 2019
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Chairs: Nasser Barghouty, NASA Headquarters (United States); Mario Perez, NASA Headquarters (United States)

The Nancy Grace Roman Technology Fellowship (RTF) is a highly competitive technology fellowship for early career, US astronomers and astrophysicists in academia, government and industry. The Fellowship, started in 2010, is designed to develop and mature the next generation of principle investigators for NASA’s science instruments and missions. This special session will feature recent and on-going technology development activities by RTF fellows followed by a question/answer period.
