2018 ESPD Prizes awarded

The European Solar Physics Division board is delighted to present the 2018 ESPD Prize winners

PhD Thesis Prize to Dr. Peter Levens (PhD carried at University of Glasgow, UK) for significant contributions to the study of tornado-like prominences – using detailed ultraviolet spectroscopic, multi wavelength imaging and visible spectropolarimetric observational analysis – helping to unveil the nature of these structures.

Early Career Researcher Prize to Dr. Tanausú del Pino Alemán (currently at Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias, Spain) for ground breaking contributions in the field of theoretical solar spectropolarimetry, developing novel methods and very efficient radiative transfer computer programs for understanding scattering line polarization using realistic atomic and atmospheric models.
