Two new Elite Researcher Prizes go to Science and Technology

Professor Steen Hannestad, Department of Physics and Astronomy, and Associate Professor Ove Christiansen, Department of Chemistry, each received a prestigious Elite Researcher Prize on 7 February. Read more (in Danish only) here.

Professor Hannestad’s work at the Department of Physics and Astronomy is concerned with gaining an understanding of the forces that created the universe. His methods include simulations of the structure of the universe – known as cosmic webs. Every spot of light in this image represents a galaxy. (illustration: IFA)
