Here at Penn, we're used to having compassionate professors. Eccentric ones, too. And an unjustifiably cruel one here and there. But Professor Danielle Bassett just took it up a notch, as she was awarded a MacArthur fellowship for her work in physics.
What exactly does that mean, you ask? Well, Bassett, and the 20 other recipients, will be granted a cool $625,000 for their accomplishments at a ceremony on Wednesday. In layman's terms? This bad bitch just changed the game at the ripe age of 32.
Alas, to all those enrolled in her Network Neuroscience course this semester: the drop period ends October 3rd.
