PSI Senior Scientist Natasha Artemieva received the Meteoritical Society’s 2015 Barringer Award for her "seminal contributions to the understanding of dynamic impact cratering physics and chemistry.” The award presentation took place July 29 at the Meteoritical Society meeting in Berkeley, Calif.
“This is a huge honor for me. It's the biggest prize an impact scientist may receive. It’s also a great opportunity to thank my colleagues who helped me to accomplish my work.” said Artemieva.
“Natasha is an exceptional scientist with an impressive body of work,” said Mark Sykes, CEO and Director of the Planetary Science Institute. “We are honored to have her as part of our PSI community.”
PSI’s Bill Hartmann received the Barringer Award in 2010.
