Climate & Space is very pleased to announce that doctoral student Camilla Harris won an award in the poster session at the 13th International School/Symposium for Space Simulations. The ISSS Prize is awarded to the top 3 student posters presented during the poster session held during the Symposium, with Gold for the top poster, Silver for 2nd place and Bronze for 3rd place. Ms. Harris receive the Silver award for her poster, "The Role of Jupiter’s Magnetospheric Plasma in Europa’s Plasma Interaction." The ISSS symposium was held at UCLA and is attended by researchers from around the world who work primarily on space plasma simulations.

The prize has a personal meaning for Camilla: "[It is] particularly special to me because I earned my bachelor's degree in physics at UCLA. I also felt very honored because one of the founders of ISSS was the late Prof. Maha Ashour-Abdalla, who taught my first plasma physics course." 

 

Congraulations, Camilla!
