Sinead M. Griffin Receives the Swiss Physical Society Prize 2017
The Swiss Physical Society Prize 2017, sponsored by ABB, will be awarded to Sinead M. Griffin, former PhD student of the Materials Theory group, for her "Outstanding computational physics research from cosmic string formation to multiferroics."
Nicola Spaldin, Materials Theory, receives L'Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Award for her revolutionary research in the field of materials science. The awards aim to recognise and support outstanding female researchers from all around the world. Nicola Spaldin has received this prestigious award for the Europe region. The British scientist's research lays the theoretical foundations for the understanding and development of so-called multiferroic materials, which have the unique property of being simultaneously magnetic and electric.
