Ross Howie wins the AIRAPT Jamieson Award

Congratulations to Dr Ross Howie on winning the Jamieson Award of AIRAPT (International Association for the Advancement of High Pressure Science and Technology).

The Jamieson Award is awarded once every two years "to an early-career scientist who has just completed outstanding PhD thesis research or given a single exceptional contribution in the field of high-pressure research as a postdoc".

Ross is distinguished for static compression experiments on hydrogen and deuterium at high pressures and temperatures. During his PhD studies with Prof Eugene Gregoryanz he discovered a new phase of hydrogen (phase IV), the first new solid form of hydrogen to be discovered in 25 years.
