"Anat has been a leader in the development of the burgeoning field of isotope mineral physics, a field that she helped invent. Her example is being followed by laboratories around the globe." said DCO colleague Ed Young (University of California Los Angeles, USA). "She is a gifted experimentalist with the ability to execute difficult experiments deftly. Add to this her keen eye for identifying important problems and one arrives at the formua for her success."
The Clarke Award recognizes an early-career scientist for a single outstanding contribution to geochemistry or cosmochemistry published either as a single paper or a series of papers on a single topic. Dr. Shahar is recognized for her significant experimental advances; her incredibly challenging yet elegant high P-T experiments; and her innovative ability to measure silicon isotopes in situ constraining the melting history of each object within. This award will be presented at the Goldschmidt2015 conference in Prague, Czech Republic this August.
