Shany Danieli (Graduate student with van Dokkum) along with Carolyn Raithel (U. Arizona) has won the 2019 Price Prize in Cosmology and Astrophysics. Shany Danieli uses innovative methods and instrumentation to discover faint galaxies and study their dark matter content. She designed and leads the Dragonfly Wide Field Survey, a comprehensive survey of the low surface brightness Universe using the Dragonfly Telephoto Array. In 2019, she provided the strongest evidence yet for the existence of a class of galaxies that lack dark matter.
