Bok Prize

ASA Annual Scientific Meeting 2018

The Bok Prize is awarded annually by the Astronomical Society of Australia to recognise outstanding research in astronomy by an Honours student or eligible Masters student at an Australian university.

The prize consists of the Bok Medal together with an award of $500 and ASA membership for the following calendar year. The recipient is 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 prize goes to Matthew Keen for his thesis “Asteroseismology of Subgiant Stars: A Study of Mixed-Mode Oscillations”. Matthew completed his honours research at the University of Sydney, supervised by Tim Bedding and Tanda Li.
