EPSS Professor Margaret Kivelson awarded 2019 Gold Medal

Posted on Jan. 11, 2019

EPSS Professor Margaret G. Kivelson has been awarded the 2019 Gold Medal, which is the Royal Astronomical Society's highest honor. The Gold Medal, which can be awarded for any reason but usually recognizes lifetime achievement, has been awarded previously to Albert Einstein, Edwin Hubble, Arthur Eddington, and Stephen Hawking. Prof. Kivelson is cited "for a lifetime of outstanding achievement in understanding planetary magnetospheres and their connections to the planets they surround."


We would like to establish a graduate student fellowship in Professor Kivelson's honor. You can partner with us in establishing this fellowship by making a tax-deductible donation with the "Give" button below. All donations will be matched one-to-one with funds available to the Dean of Physical Sciences. We recently celebrated Professor Kivelson's numerous achievements at an event on campus (a videorecording is available) and she was recently profiled in the New York Times.
