Anouk wins Prestigious Award

I am pleased to say that Anouk Borst has been awarded the Max Hey Medal by the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland. This medal is awarded “to recognise existing and on-going research of excellence… [by an early career researcher] evidence of which is provided in the form of work published in highly-regarded, international scientific journals“. Anouk joins the list of winners of this medal who are a roll call of the best in the mineralogical, petrological and geochemical sciences communities across British and Irish Universities.

Anouk’s award included recognition for her work on peralkaline igneous rocks and rare earth ore deposits.

The medal itself will be presented to Anouk – hopefully in person – in 2021. Following on from her award, St Andrews University publicised the award and did a short biopic on Anouk as part of the ‘Talking Saints‘ series.

Well done Anouk!
