Marija Vranic Wins the 2022 IUPAP award for plasma physics


The EPP member Marija Vranic, is the winner of the 2022 International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Early Career Award for the Comission on Plasma Physics. The recognition is awarded for her contributions on the understanding of the interplay between classical and quantum effects in extreme ultra-intense laser-plasma interactions, on the underlying computational methods, and on the applications for plasma-based secondary sources of energetic particles. This is the first time an IUPAP prize is given to someone working in Portugal.
