Dr. Beatriz Sánchez-Cano has been awarded a prestigious award by the European Geophysical Union.

Congratulations to Beatriz Sánchez-Cano, who has been awarded the Arne Richter Award for Outstanding Early Career Scientists by the European Geophysical Union (EGU).  Dr. Sánchez-Cano is a postdoctoral researcher in space plasma physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy, currently specialising in the exploration of the Martian ionosphere via a synthesis of measurements from multiple visiting spacecraft.

In October the EGU named the 49 recipients of next year’s Union Medals and Awards, Division Medals and Division Outstanding Early Career Scientist Awards. These individuals are honoured for their important contributions to the Earth, planetary and space sciences.
