In April 2022, the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) established a program to grant the title of Senior Fellow to individuals who are internationally recognized for their academic or educational achievements, have made significant contributions to Kavli IPMU research activities, and are expected to contribute to the promotion of Kavli IPMU research activities in the future.
