Congratulations to Postdoctoral By-Fellow Maylis Landeau on winning the 2016 Corrsin-Kovasznay Outstanding Paper Award from the Johns Hopkins University Centre for Environmental and Applied Fluid Mechanics.
Maylis, who was a postdoc at JHU before coming to Cambridge last October, received the $500 award (which recognises work of excellence, originality and potential impact) for her paper entitled “Core merging and stratification following giant impact”, published in Nature Geosciences in 2016.
Maylis is currently a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow working at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics with Churchill’s Professor Colm-cille Caulfield. She studied originally in France for her Bachelor’s Degree in earth and planetary Sciences, Master’s Degree in fluid mechanics and PhD in geophysics. Her research aims at understanding the formation and the dynamics of the interior of Earth and other planets, bridging gaps between fluid mechanics, geophysics and planetary sciences and combining laboratory experiments with numerical modelling and theory.
