Dr Joanna Dunkley awarded The Fowler Prize/RAS

13 January 2014

The Fowler Prize in Astronomy has been awarded to Dr Joanna Dunkley from Astrophysics at the University of Oxford.

Joanna has played a leading role in a number of high profile experiments measuring anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background. These include the NASA WMAP satellite, the Atacama Cosmology Telescope and most recently, the ESA Planck satellite. A key characteristic of her research is her application of advanced statistical techniques to complex data. In addition to her work on CMB anisotropies Joanna has done influential work on Galactic emission, clusters of galaxies and fluctuations in the infrared background.


The Fowler Prizes are for individuals who have made a particularly noteworthy contribution to the astronomical and geophysical sciences at an early stage of their research career.
