At the BPS meeting in May 2019, Dr. Daniela Mockler was awarded the "Prize for best speaker". Congratulations!
Daniela Mockler recently did her doctorate at the Pierre Auger Project at Karlsruhe Institut for Technology (KIT, Germany) and is now continuing her work for the Pierre Auger Observatory at ULB Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB, Belgium).
The young scientist contest has a long tradition at the annual BPS meeting. Both doctoral students and young postdocs with less than 5 years of professional experience after their PhD defense are eligible to take part in the competition. From among the applicants, the committee initially invited eight speakers to a pre-selection and chose three of them as finalists, who presented their papers at the BPS meeting on May 22. The three finalists will also have the opportunity to write an article on their topic for the B-Phy Magazine of the Belgian Physical Society.
