Ursula Keller - Swiss Science Prize Marcel Benoist
Ursula Keller has shifted the boundaries of ultrafast laser physcis. She is awarded the Swiss Science Prize Marcel Benoist.
It is regarded as the 'Swiss Nobel Prize' among researchers and endowed with 250,000 Swiss francs. This year, the Swiss Science Prize Marcel Benoist goes to Ursula Keller, Professor of Experimental Physics at the Institute for Quantum Electronics at ETH Zurich. She has frequently pushed the boundaries of ultrafast laser physics with both theoretical models and experimental results.
“It is a huge honour for me to be awarded the Marcel Benoist Prize,” Ursula Keller announced. “It is recognition of the almost 30 years of applied and basic research at the ETH Zurich and the first science award I have received in Switzerland. I would like to thank my fantastic research group, all the postdocs, PhD students and external partners who have made this work possible.”
But Usula Keller is also very committed to equality and targets the failures of ETH governance with the same laser precision.
