Otto-Hahn-Medal awarded to Rakesh Yadav

Great news: my former postdoc and ongoing collaborator Dr. Rakesh Yadav was awarded the Otto-Hahn-Medal of the Max Planck Society. This is a prize the Max Planck Society awards to young scientists for outstanding achievements. Rakesh works on theoretical models of stellar and (exo-)planetary magnetic fields, with a focus on the magnetic dynamo processes in quickly rotating objects. Here’s the link to the press release. Congratulations to Rakesh!
