For outstanding structural and functional studies of the influenza virus envelope glycoprotein hemagglutinin (HA) to understand how our immune system can broadly neutralize the virus through interaction with the HA and prevent viral fusion.
For furthering understanding of itinerant magnetism and for contributions to the study of quantum matter at high pressure using synchrotron x-ray diffraction.

For applying challenging surface and coherent x-ray scattering techniques to understanding the structure and dynamics of liquid metal surfaces and quantum states in condensed matter systems.
For applying novel x-ray techniques that permit the study of light-element speciation at high pressure and for innovative experimental approaches to studying mineral physics at conditions of the Earth’s deep interior.
For combining synchrotron and other techniques in new ways to study the influence of microorganisms in two domains: the speciation of metals in geochemical systems and the weathering
of basaltic glasses in deep ocean environments.
