Anne Green Prize
ASA Annual Scientific Meeting 2018
The Anne Green Prize is awarded annually by the Astronomical Society of Australia for a significant advance or accomplishment by a mid-career scientist. The Prize is awarded based on a nominated body of work that supports the scientific accomplishment and the subsequent impact of the research. The research can be in any area of astronomy or a closely related field.
The Prize consists of the Anne Green Medal together with an award of $2,500 and ASA membership for the following calendar year. The recipient will be invited to present a paper on their research at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Astronomical Society of Australia, where the prize will be presented.
This year’s inaugural prize goes to Dr. Barbara Catinella (ICRAR). The prize is awarded to Barbara for her unique contributions to the studies of cold gas in galaxies, and her leadership of state-of-the-art projects in the field of gas in galaxies and its connection with star formation.
