TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A University of Arizona astrophysicist has won a prestigious fellowship that she plans to use for research on black holes and a type of extremely dense stars.

Astronomy and physics Professor Feryal Ozel (FEHR’-e-ahl oh-ZEHL’) is the recipient of one of 175 fellowships recently awarded by the New York-based John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation from along a pool of nearly 3,000 applicants.

Ozel plans to use her fellowship to study neutron stars and black holes. Those are two of her primary areas of work.

She’ll be using data from the Event Horizon Telescope and a NASA-funded instrument that is going to be mounted on the International Space Station.
