Postdoc wins Jocelyn Bell Burnell Medal and Prize

We are delighted to announce that Carmen Palacios-Berraquero from our 2013 cohort (above left) has been awarded the 2018 Jocelyn Bell Burnell Medal and Prize - an Institute of Physics award for female physicists in very early career, just months after having submitted her PhD. Four finalists from across the country gave presentations at the event in London, covering both their research and their work to support and encourage others in physics.

Carmen, who has just finished her PhD on quantum optics and on 2-D materials, spoke about her research as well as her activities as a former president of Cavendish Inspiring Women , a Women and Non-binary Group at the Cavendish Laboratory. She has also been doing some research into the reasons for inequality among women and black and minority ethnic people in physics, and currently has submitted a book proposal based on her findings.

Well done Carmen!

See the IoP announcement for further details.
