Congratulations to Konstantin Matchev and Bernard Whiting who are newly elected Fellows of the American Physical Society.

Konstantin Matchev was nominated by the APS Division of Particles and Fields "For contributions to the collider phenomenology of supersymmetry and extra dimensions, studies of dark matter, and leadership in the development and popularization of simulation tools."

Bernard Whiting was nominated by the APS Topical Group on Gravitation "For influential contributions to wide-ranging areas of gravitational physics, including tests of Newtonian gravity, stability of the Kerr metric, and the self-force problem."

Election to APS Fellowship is limited to no more than 0.5% of the membership each year, and is recognition of outstanding contributions to physics.
