HEMI is pleased to congratulate Sarah Hörst – HEMI Fellow, principal investigator at the Hörst Group and assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University – for being awarded the James B. Macelwane Medal by the American Geophysical Union.
Hörst is interested in atmospheric chemistry, specifically the complex organic chemistry that occurs in the atmosphere of Titan, one of Saturn’s moons. She is also interested in complex organics elsewhere in the solar system and the universe, whether they are produced in an atmosphere or on a surface.
The James B. Macelwane Medal is awarded to three to five researchers who have made significant contributions to Earth and space science; nominees must be within 10 years from their PhD at the time of nomination.
