Simon

Due to his brilliant performance, Simon Thor has been part-time employed at our space and plasma physics group since his senior high-school project (gymnasiearbete) at 17 years age. His studies in magnetospheric reconnection and auroral research resulted so far in several conference contributions, one published and one to be submitted paper to the Journal of Geophysical Research.

Simon Thor is now in his third year of bachelor studies in physics at KTH, doing his bachelor thesis on particle physics while working in parallel on his third space plasma project at our research group, a case study about multiple polar arcs based on satellite data.

Simon Thor has been selected among a large number of ambitious young scientists with outstanding research results for the annual Scholarship of 200 000 Kr for research in natural sciences from the Anders Walls Stiftelse.

We congratulate him on this well-deserved price!
