We are delighted to announce that Prof Claudia Maraston has been awarded the 2018 Eddington Medal for Astronomy by the Royal Astronomical Society for ‘investigations of outstanding merit in theoretical astrophysics’.
Claudia has published theoretical models for the expected energy emission and mass of galaxies including innovative prescriptions of stellar evolution, which raised strong interest and a vivid debate, and stimulated further work from international groups.
Previous recipients of the award include Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose. Claudia is only the second female scientist to receive the award since its inception in 1953.
