American Physical Society Dissertation Prize for Veronika Sunko
Last month we had the pleasure of announcing some well-deserved recognition for Veronika Sunko’s outstanding PhD thesis research (see post of 7 October), co-supervised by Andy Mackenzie of the Physics of Quantum Materials Department and Phil King of the University of St Andrews. She has now won a further prize for it, the Richard L Greene Dissertation Award of the American Physical Society. This prestigious international award comprises a cash prize, a certificate and an invitation to Veronika to give a talk about her doctoral research at a special prize session at the 2020 American Physical Society March Meeting in Denver, Colorado. Veronika is the second recipient from our Institute of this prize, following Alexander Steppke in 2015.
We offer our warmest congratulations to Veronika for this award and the research achievements that led to it. To the coming generations of talented graduate students the message is clear – keep up the good work!
