Paul-Niggli-Medal 2022 to Prof. Troch
The Board of the Paul Niggli Foundation decided to award the Paul Niggli Medal 2022 to Jun.-Prof. Dr. Juliana Troch in recognition of her innovative research combining field work, experimental petrology and modelling to understand the thermodynamic evolution of fluids in magmatic systems.
The award ceremony will take place during the 2022 SGM meeting in Lausanne.
The Paul Niggli Medal is Switzerland’s most prestigious “young scientist award” in the Earth Sciences. Since the 100th birthday of Paul Niggli in 1988, it has been awarded annually by the Paul Niggli Foundation, through a committee under the auspices of the Swiss Society of Mineralogy and Petrology. The Paul Niggli Medal honors young geoscientists for outstanding achievements in the fields of mineralogy, geochemistry, petrology, resource geology or solid-earth geophysics and in the technical applications of these fields. The medal and a cash prize are awarded yearly at the plenary session of the Swiss Geoscience Meeting.
