Public presentation of Physics Student Awards

13 July 2016. On Thursday, July 14, starting at 5p.m. the Physikalische Gesellschaft zu Berlin invites to a public event in the Magnus-Haus in Berlin, where this year's Physics Student Awards will be presented. Astrophysicist Lisa Lehmann, who did her master thesis at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) is one of the awardees. The ceremonial address will be given by AIP scientist Else Starkenburg.

Lisa Lehmann studied physics/astronomy at the University of Potsdam. In 2013 she picked an astrophysical topic for her Bachelor thesis about "Magnetic field measurements of eps Eridani", supervised at AIP, and published her results in a refereed journal later on. Her Master thesis addressed "Modeling Azimuthal Magnetic Field Bands on Cool Stars Using a Simple Model" under co-supervision of AIP and of the University of St. Andrews where she received a doctoral stipend afterwards.

The Physics Student Award of the Physikalische Gesellschaft zu Berlin (PGzB) was presented every year between 2004 and 2011, funded by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Stiftung. Since 2013 the award is presented again, funded by the Siemens AG. The award ceremony is public.
