Dr. Julie Loisel: 2021 recipient of the Sir Nicholas Shackleton Medal For Outstanding Young Quaternary Scientists Award

The PAGES IPO would like to extend its congratulations to Dr. Julie Loisel, co-leader of the PAGES C-PEAT working group, on being named the 2021 recipient of the Sir Nicholas Shackleton Medal For Outstanding Young Quaternary Scientists Award. 

"Professor Sir Nicholas Shackleton –or ‘Nick’ as he preferred to be called- was one of the foremost Quaternary scientists in the world, his scientific legacy is in no need of elaboration. Nick served as President of INQUA from 1999 to 2003. One of Nick’s most endearing qualities was his enthusiastic embracement of international collaboration and co-operation. This extended to unselfish mentoring and encouragement of young scientists, both at his home institution, Cambridge University, and elsewhere. It is for this reason that the Sir Nicholas Shackleton medal is dedicated to rewarding the achievements of outstanding young Quaternary scientists. " > Read more
