By johnboy - 11 September 2012 0

ANU is celebrating the award of the very big Balzan Prize to their Professor Kurt Lambek:

Professor Lambek, from the Research School of Earth Sciences in the ANU College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, has won more than $750,000 for his exceptional contribution to the understanding of the relationship between post-glacial rebound and sea level changes.

Professor Lambek said that the reality of winning the award had not sunk in yet.

“The Balzan Prize has consistently been awarded to very illustrious scientists and to be elected into this select company is a great honour,” he said.

“The prize money will be a helpful mechanism to try and transfer some of my expertise to the next generation of scientists.”
