Adding or updating a Fellow Page on the IRIS-HEP Website

NOTE: Do not add a new file if you were a fellow before - just make updates to to your existing markdown file. (See “Adding multiple projects” to include your new project)

In order to add your information, we request you to please supply a photo ( First_Name-Last_Name.jpg or .png - 320x240 pixels) and a paragraph summarizing your project’s goals.

You should submit a pull request with the photo, a markdown file with the summary information above, and your proposal to this repo:

Please Note: In the markdown file you create, ensure you set the “active” attribute to True – (i.e. active: True). Otherwise, your entry will not appear on our Fellows page.

Be sure to include your project summary in the project_goal field.

You can leave the “presentations” and “current_status” fields blank for now. (Make sure to include the fields)

You can optionally include your linkedin-profile.
