Congratulations to Professor Marie Edmonds on being awarded the 2020 AGU Joanne Simpson Medal for mid-career scientists.

The honorees were awarded by the AGU for their excellence in scientific research, education, communication and outreach – having made outstanding contributions to the Earth and space sciences community.

“These individuals embody our vision of a thriving, sustainable, and equitable future for all: powered by discovery, and action”.

Marie, who is Ron Oxburgh Fellow in Earth Sciences at Queens College, was one of three recipients that received the award for mid-career scientists.

“I'm honoured and humbled to be in the company of two other recipients of the Medal this year, who are both incredible women scientists”.

Marie’s research focuses on how volcanoes shape the climate and planet through outgassing of volatiles like water and carbon dioxide. Specifically, her work has made important contributions to our understanding of the role these volatiles play in melting, magma genesis, eruption style and climate modulation.
