The 2019 Karen Harvey Prize goes to our colleague Anthony Yeates

(15 January 2019)

The Karen Harvey Prize is awarded by the Solar Physics Division of the American Astronomical Society for a significant contribution to the study of the Sun early in a person’s professional career.

Anthony Yeates (Department of Mathematical Sciences, Durham University) has been awarded the 2019 Karen Harvey Prize for his outstanding contributions to the development of magnetic field evolution models, which have advanced our understanding of how the Sun’s magnetic fields originate, evolve, and govern the dynamics of the solar corona.

Anthony will give a scheduled Prize Lecture, and receive his physical prize certificate, at the upcoming joint AAS/SPD meeting in St. Louis, Missouri (June 9 – 13). Please join us in congratulating Anthony on this well-deserved recognition.
