Edward Spiegel (1931-2020)

Professor Emeritus, Astronomy




It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Columbia Astronomy Professor Emeritus Ed Spiegel. Professor Spiegel received his B.A. from UCLA and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. He held research positions at Princeton University, NYU, and Cambridge University; he also held faculty positions at UC Berkeley and at NYU, before joining the faculty at Columbia. He was the Rutherford Professor emeritus in the Astronomy Department.
