Women in Physics Prize from the Danish Physical Society

The Danish Physical Society’s network for Women in Physics has awarded the Prize for 2012 to PhD-student Christine Hartmann at the Discovery Center ‘for her ground-breaking and independent research in the subject of neutrino oscillations’. The Women in Physics Prize, normally awarded to scientists at much later stages in their careers, was handed over at a ceremony at the Danish Physical Society’s annual meeting on the 18th of June 2012. Christine Hartmann continues her work on neutrino physics at the Discovery Center, while also working on physics related to the strong interactions and physics of the Large Hadron Collider. In tough competition she has also been invited to spend 6 months this coming fall at the Theory Group of CERN on an EU-grant.
