Mathematician Wins Two Awards for Work on the Planet Jupiter

20 November 2023

St Andrews applied mathematician Daphné Lemasquerier has been awarded the 2022 Donald L. Turcotte Award of the American Geophysical Union for her contribution to nonlinear geophysics, her commitment to research, and her exceptional work to understand better the nonlinear dynamics of Jupiter’s atmosphere.

Daphné has also been awarded the 2022 Andreas Acrivos Dissertation Award in Fluid Dynamics and Prize Lectureship of the American Physical Society for her insightful and comprehensive study, based on innovative and elegant laboratory experiments, numerical analysis, and theoretical modeling, of the nonlinear dynamics of Jupiter, including its shallow vortices, deep jets, and their complex interactions.é&year=2022
